In her new role, Ericson will oversee Alstom’s engagement with U.S. policy stakeholders while directly supporting its pursuit of new business opportunities in the areas of thermal and renewable power generation, rail transit and electricity transmission and distribution.
"With 8,000 U.S. employees and major production and technology centers across 45 states and D.C., Alstom is well positioned to deliver the technology innovations customers need to advance America's energy and transportation future," Ericson said. "I look forward to helping customers and the broader U.S. market take full advantage of our strong domestic capability as well as Alstom’s global expertise. I also am eager to engage with policy makers on mechanisms that drive companies like ours to create high-quality jobs and catalyze economic activity.”
Prior to taking on her new assignment, Ericson served as vice president of product platform management for Alstom’s global gas-fired power generation business. She also has held strategic operations, business strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and global marketing positions within several of Alstom’s power generation businesses.
