Andreas Rudolf

“Veronika Bienert has been working for Siemens in a wide variety of leadership positions for more than 25 years. As CFO of Siemens Financial Services, she successfully expanded our global expertise in financing and risk management. For these reasons, we are very pleased to appoint her – a recognized expert with international experience and a profound knowledge of Siemens – CEO of Siemens Financial Services. Together with Andreas Rudolf as the new CFO, SFS continues to have a competent leadership team that has proven itself in practice,” said Ralf P. Thomas, CFO of Siemens AG. “On behalf of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Roland Chalons-Browne for his many years of successful work.”
“SFS links technological expertise with financial know-how in a unique way and employs this combination as an enabler and integrator for Siemens’ businesses. I’m looking forward to working together with Andreas Rudolf and our global team to continue to help drive Siemens’ transformation and thus support our customers in key areas like automation, digitalization and sustainability,” said Veronika Bienert. 
Bienert began her career at Siemens in 1993 with a focus on automotive technology as a participant in the company’s management training program. She has been CFO of Siemens Financial Services since 2016. In this capacity, she was also responsible for SFS’ credit-risk management. Her extensive experience in Siemens’ industrial business and in the financing business fostered SFS’ successful development and transformation within the Siemens Group’s new setup.
“I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to become CFO and join Veronika Bienert in continuing SFS’ ongoing successful development. As Siemens is combining the real and the digital worlds, financing can play a pivotal role for our customers,” said Andreas Rudolf.
Andreas Rudolf has many years of experience in finance. After completing his studies in economics and business administration with a doctoral degree, he began his career at Siemens in 1997, where he held a variety of finance and project management positions within the company until 2006. He then went on to serve as CFO at different national and international companies in Switzerland. In 2015, Andreas Rudolf returned to Siemens where, as head of Siemens Pensions, he has had the financial responsibility for the group-wide pension management since 2016.
