GE Transportation, which announced plans earlier this year to relocate its headquarters to Chicago, has hired a new chief spokeswoman who already makes her home in the Windy City.
Jennifer Erickson will become the company’s global communications leader, effective Jan. 14.
Erickson comes to the company from Motorola, where she most recently served as chief communications officer for Motorola Mobility.
Erickson will report to Lorenzo Simonelli, the company’s chief executive. She replaces Stephan Koller, who left GE Transportation earlier this year.
