GE names China CEO Hutchinson to run Alstom's energy business

|By:, SA News Editor

GE appoints Mark Hutchinson, who has been the company's chief executive for greater China since 2011, to integrate the energy business it is acquiring from Alstom.

Like many top GE execs, Hutchinson has cycled through different roles within the company; before heading GE's China unit, he oversaw European and Asian real estate operations, built a European capital markets team as president of GE Capital Real Estate, and led GE's global securitization and loan syndication team from New York.

Hutchinson's China role will be succeeded by Rachel Duan, who previously was head of GE's healthcare business in China.
