“We are pleased to welcome Herbert Klausner to the regional management team. Having worked in Kuwait previously, his knowledge of the market and customers’ needs are invaluable.

His current post marks a return after eight years to Kuwait, where he held the position of Group Manager for Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Automation & Drives, Industry Solutions, and Siemens Building Technologies.
Commenting on his appointment, Klausner said: “This is an exciting time in Kuwait, as the country’s vision for 2035 seeks to strengthen the economy and support social and human development. With a focus on electrification, automation and digitalization, Siemens will continue its role as a technology partner, providing reliable and innovative solutions that assist Kuwait’s long-term plans.”
Siemens has been active in Kuwait since 1959 and has been heavily involved in a number of key infrastructure projects across the country.
