GE announced yesterday that Jamie Miller has been appointed president and chief executive officer of GE Transportation.

Miller succeeds Russell Stokes, who will lead GE's Energy Management business effective Oct. 1, GE officials said in a press release.

Jamie Miller, GE Transportation's new president and CEO.

Miller, who joined GE in 2008, previously served as senior vice president and chief information officer overseeing the company’s global information technology strategy, services and operations. She has been a leader in driving accelerated speed and productivity through software and manufacturing technologies at the company, officials said.

"As we position GE as the premier digital industrial company, create new markets and enhance our product portfolio, Jamie will be instrumental in delivering better, faster solutions for GE Transportation's customers. Her strong operational rigor and track record of executing large transformational projects will be key to advancing GE Transportation’s digital and industrial strength," said GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt.

Industrial products and digital solutions are equally important, Miller said.

"As demand for holistic, connected solutions continues to increase, GE Transportation will be ready to serve the industry with hardware and software solutions that will provide our customers with the tools needed to be successful in today's challenging market,” she said. "We will position Transportation for this generational change in GE and across our industry."
