Abrams is one of the best directors in Hollywood. This is reason enough to hire him. Sure, his creative input is more limited that that of the average movie director but the job is nonetheless important.
Furthermore he is a Wars fan which is, given the abysmal experiences of Trek fans having written the scripts for the last two movies, not a guarantee for good work but if you can choose between two people for one job it is pretty natural to take the one who loves your product more.
