GE has named Rafael Santana chief executive officer of GE Transportation effective Nov. 1.
Santana is currently president and CEO of GE Latin America. He will succeed Jamie Miller, who will become chief financial officer of GE on Nov. 1.
Santana has more than 17 years of experience at GE — including leadership positions in oil and gas, power, and transportation — before being named president and CEO of GE Latin America.
Prior to joining GE, Santana served in leadership roles at ExxonMobil and British American Tobacco.
In his current role, Santana worked with regional business leaders to make Latin America one of GE's largest and fastest growing regions, GE officials said in a press release.
"Rafael has deep roots in GE Transportation, having spent eight years in a variety of commercial and product management roles, as well as leading the Transportation team in Latin America," said GE Chairman and CEO John Flannery. "His experience helping teams navigate through this tough market, combined with his deep global, operational, services and industrial experience make him the perfect fit for this role."
