Siemens announces new CEO for wind power unite
With immediate effect, Jens-Peter Saul (43) has been appointed CEO of the Siemens Wind Power Business Unit headquartered in Brande. He succeeds Andreas Nauen, who is leaving Siemens at his own wish.
Until now, Saul was managing director of Siemens Energy in the UK and also responsible at Energy for the Regions North and West Europe.
In 1994, Saul gained a degree in engineering at the University of Hanover. He joined Siemens’ Fossil Power Generation Division in 1996 as project manager, where he held various managerial posts. Following a short term as project manager with a consulting company in the automobile sector, in 2002 Saul assumed managerial functions at Siemens, including responsibility for power plants sales and marketing in the Middle East. In 2005, he was appointed head of power plant business for the Siemens Power Generation Group in the UK.
“We would like to thank Mr Nauen for his achievements for our company,” said René Umlauft, CEO of Siemens’ Renewable Energy Division. “In Jens-Peter Saul we have found the right successor to push ahead with achievement of our ambitious targets in the field of wind turbines.”
