Manish Bhandari named CEO at GE Current

GE Current has announced the appointment of Manish Bhandari as Chief Executive Officer. He succeeds Randall Swift, a partner at GE Current’s parent company American Industrial Partners (AIP), who had served as the interim president and CEO.

Said Bhandari: “It is a great honour to have the opportunity to join the Current leadership team and serve alongside more than 2,000 talented employees worldwide as the company’s next CEO.”

Bhandari joins Current from Emerson where he was most recently group president for the discrete & industrial portfolio of businesses. He previously served as president of Chloride Industrial Power, a global business of Emerson based in France that provides industrial back-up power and emergency lighting solutions.

“Manish’s record of developing and leading digital-ready industrial businesses makes him ideally suited for the CEO role,” said Swift. “His extensive experience managing the needs of large global customers and world-class distribution channels will greatly benefit Current’s vision and AIP is excited to partner with him.”
