GE Current Appoints New CEO, Manish Bhandari
GE Current, which was sold to American Industry Partners and changed the name from Current, powered by GE into GE Current, a Daintree company, announced the appointment of Manish Bhandari as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). He succeeds Randall Swift, a partner at parent company American Industrial Partners (AIP), who has served as the interim president and CEO.
“Current’s extensive, controls-driven lighting portfolio is in an industry led by innovation,” said Bhandari. “It is a great honor 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’s appointment caps Current’s April 2019 acquisition by AIP. Bhandari, selected to apply his extensive tenure within the digital-ready energy and infrastructure management space, comes to Current from Emerson, a diversified industrial conglomerate, where he, most recently, was the 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 provided industrial back-up power, and commercial emergency lighting solutions.
