The new leadership team members join during a period of strong growth for the company during this COVID 19 year, well ahead of the market due to the unique value of its solutions: the ability to cater to the needs of all types of transport professionals and cover all levels of logistics complexities as recognized by Gartner in their 2020 Magic Quadrant for Transport Management Systems.

As Chief Product Officer, Gwyn Clay brings over 20 years of experience in product management and development in private equity and public company environments. Gwyn will focus on further leveraging the synergies between Alpega’s solutions which uniquely position the Group in the transport and logistics market by being the sole vendor offering shipper solutions globally (Alpega TMS and TenderEasy) and leading freight exchanges with the largest network of carriers and freight forwarders in Europe. Before Alpega Group, Gwyn was Head of Product for the large Automation Business at Broadcom Inc, where he also ran cross business-unit initiatives focused on machine learning and artificial intelligence.

“The need for digital transformation in Transportation is so apparent to me. If we can get this right, along with driving actionable insights through all of the shipper and carrier data we process, we have the very real opportunity to change the world for the better.”

Jörg Heinen, VP of IT, will ensure that Alpega continues to deliver best-in-class IT service for its customers thanks to his background in integrating IT organizations that were coming together during acquisitions, as well as his experience working in the private equity environment. Previously, Jörg was CIO of WMF Group driving the digital transformation, implementing a cloud-based IoT platform and supporting growth by new digital business models and Henkel where his role was instrumental harmonizing and leading IT service delivery in Europe and handling acquisitions from due diligence to post-merger integration.

“Alpega struck me as a company that has tremendous potential. As a close business partner, to be able to harness talented people and IT systems to drive the company forward into a great future with new initiatives represents an interesting challenge and great opportunity for me.”

“Our entire Alpega team is excited to welcome Gwyn Clay and Jörg Heinen. Fast growth requires leaders who can scale and both Gwyn and Jörg will help us scale to the next level. Their expertise and knowledge will be tremendously valuable as we continue shaping transport collaboration with our solution portfolio during these times when the need for digitization in logistics is accelerating and driving our growth” said Todd DeLaughter, CEO of Alpega Group.

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 06:46:00 CESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
