US conglomerate General Electric said on Thursday that Mark Hutchinson, who has been running its Chinese business, will be tasked with integrating Alstom's power and grid business.
GE last month agreed to buy the businesses from Alstom for $16.9bn after weeks of negotiations with a French government battling to revive a sluggish economy.
As part of the acquisition - the biggest industrial one that GE has made - France took a 20 per cent stake in Alstom and the US company pledged to create jobs in the country.
John Rice, the vice chairman of GE, said of Mr Hutchinson's appointment that:His deep knowledge of GE and experience in global markets, make him the right person for this important role.
