Since 2012, he has held a role at ABB Group within the GBS Finance Lead Center as Global FinanceProcess Owner Record to Report. Since 2019 - ABB Poland, GBS Krakow Head’s Hub and Head of GBS Finance Operational Services in Krakow and Tallinn.
When ABB chose to open the GBS in Kraków, Poland, back in 2014-2015, Peter supported a big transformation of the company and was involved in the ABB’s GBS creation project heavily, as one of the leaders within Finance organization. He had a transformational role and his input has been instrumental in setting up ABB GBS, specifically in Krakow as one of 5 global locations for ABB.
Second to that, a big project where Peter was instrumental in, was the Power Grid Separation to Hitachi – in July 2020, during the pandemic period, when the organization was operating fully remotely. ABB Group divested approx. 35,000 employees to Hitachi. That was a big transformation that impacted quite a number of people and one of the biggest people changes that he has ever experienced.
