For more than three decades, Kaeser (58) has contributed tremendously to the growth and development of the company’s operations in the Middle East and beyond. Under his leadership, Siemens achieved strong performance and further cemented its position as a leading technology provider across the Energy, Healthcare, Infrastructure and Cities and Industry sectors in the region where he held the position of CEO since 2008.
“Over the past years, Erich Kaeser has led our business in a direction of robust growth. I would like to thank him for his dedication and great commitment,” said Siersdorfer. “As we glance ahead, I look forward to taking on my new responsibilities within Siemens and working with our strong teams to steer the company towards further expansion and profitability by focusing on the strategic opportunities in front of us.”
“Siemens has played a key role in supporting the region’s development for more than 150 years. With yesterday’s announcement of Dubai’s win to host the Expo 2020, we see enormous growth opportunities in the Middle East. We are eager to contribute not only innovative technologies to the region’s economies, but also to its human development and sustainability,” Siersdorfer added.
