“With sustainability and innovation at the core of what we do in ABB, I often ask myself what is best for our business and people,” said Hamidi. “Are we running our business in a way that is right for our people, the environment, our customers, the industry and ultimately, the wider society? Reflecting on this helps me make better informed decisions. I thank the team at the Instrumentation Excellence Awards for this recognition, and I am most grateful to my talented colleagues for all their hard work and dedication that helps us make a difference to the industries we serve – and the world around us.”
“I could not be more pleased to learn that Amina has won this award,” said Jacques Mulbert, President, ABB Measurement & Analytics. “Her example to young women and men planning STEM careers should keep a pipeline of young talent joining ABB and the instrumentation industry for years to come.”
