Siemens Makes CEO Changes

MUNICH, Germany — Jan Mrosik (51), currently CEO of the Energy Management Division, has been appointed CEO of the Digital Factory Division, effective June 1, 2016. Anton Huber (65), Digital Factory’s current CEO, is retiring on October 1, 2016. He will continue to serve the company in a consulting capacity until that date. Ralf Christian (52) will be the sole CEO of the Energy Management Division, effective June 1, 2016. Christian is currently the Division’s co-CEO with Mrosik.

“We’d like to thank Anton Huber for his extraordinarily successful work in over 35 years at Siemens. At an early stage, he leveraged the opportunities of digitalization and laid the basis for today’s Digital Factory Division by integrating industry software into our automation business. With its combination of hardware and software for industrial production, the Division is uniquely positioned worldwide for the future”, said Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG. “Jan Mrosik’s long years of experience in automation and smart grids have provided him with the optimal prerequisites for continuing Digital Factory’s success story. The Energy Management Division has mastered the major challenges of the past few years and is delivering growth and solid progress in profitability. With his strong team, Ralf Christian will successfully master the challenges that still lie ahead of us and realize the business’s enormous potential.”
Jan Mrosik, who holds a doctorate in electrical and industrial engineering, has served Siemens in a variety of capacities over the last 20 years. Previously CEO of the company’s smart grid business, he is currently co-CEO with Ralf Christian of the Energy Management Division.
Christian began his Siemens career in 1989 and held a variety of positions at the company until 1998. After a stint in the capital goods industry, the university-trained industrial engineer returned to Siemens in 2004. Before joining Mrosik as co-CEO of Energy Management, he headed Siemens’ low- and medium-voltage business.
