ABB appoints new Industry Network Leader for food and beverage

26 July 2018

Darcy Simonis to head ABB’s global food and beverage network

Global automation and robotics expert, ABB has announced the appointment of Darcy Simonis to the position of industry network leader for its food and beverage operations. She succeeds Markus Brettschneider, head of segment and account management who previously held the role.

Darcy joins ABB from Pentair, where she has held several roles since 2002 including food services sales direc-tor for the Americas as well as platform director for food and beverage. Darcy most recently held the role of senior sales director leading the food and beverage and industrial teams in the Americas.

In her new role at ABB, Darcy will continue to develop and strengthen ABB’s global food and beverage busi-ness. She will drive the ambitious growth plan together with the food and beverage country and business leads to achieve a market leading position for ABB in the industry over the next three years

“I’m very excited to have such a fantastic opportunity to lead ABB’s global food and beverage network, and I am looking forward to being part of a technology partner which is helping F&B customers power, automate, and digitalize their plants, processes, and production,” said Simonis.

“The food and beverage industry has been slow to adopt digital technologies within the manufacturing pro-cess, however it is our job to educate and inform them on how Industry 4.0 technologies can truly revolu-tionize processes, improving both efficiency and profitability. Exciting times lie ahead for the industry and I’m pleased to be part of it.”

“Darcy brings with her a deep knowledge of the food and beverage industry, with an OEM’s background and perspective,” added Markus Brettschneider, head of segment and account management. “Together with the country food and beverage teams and our growing customer base, Darcy is well positioned to lead and grow our food and beverage business.”

Simonis will be based Chicago, Illinois, in the United States.
