RALEIGH, NC, October 29, 2001 – Siemens Power Transmission & Distribution, Inc., (SPT&D) a subsidiary of Siemens Corporation and Siemens AG, announced the new structure of its Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) Division located in Minneapolis, MN.
This structure was effective on October 1, 2001.
The new structure is driven by the full integration of Telegyr Systems Inc., into the EMIS organization and the complete acquisition of Frankendata, USA, which were also effective on October 1, 2001.
The Energy Management and Information Systems Division is lead by Greg Johnson, divisional Vice President. “Due to the changing utility landscape and the acquisitions and subsequent mergers of Frankendata and Telegyr into Siemens, we needed to organize ourselves in a way that meets the challenges of satisfying our customers with the broad base of systems and services that we now possess” stated Johnson.
The basic structure involves the concept of competence units. Specifically, competence units have been established for project engineering and for development. The Director of the Project Engineering Competence Unit will be John O’Hehir, an industry veteran. The Development Competence Unit will be lead by Randy Horn, a long time member of the Siemens global Research and Development organization.
Johnson explained, “With competence centers we are able group together staff with similar skill sets allowing for enhanced sharing of technology techniques so we have more consistency in the processes used to execute a project. This will drive efficiency”.
Siemens EMIS will continue to focus on the North American and Latin American energy marketplaces with a full line of service offerings. Vamsi Chadalavada has been newly appointed as Director of North American Business. His leadership will complement that of his counterpart, Roberto Bayetti Director of Latin American Business.
Chadalavada and Bayetti will be responsible for bringing Siemens’ highly advanced control system software technology, IT integration expertise and decades of global experience to their respective markets.
Michael Heinrich is the General Manager and Vice President of Siemens EMIS West Operation (formerly Telegyr Systems Inc.) which also reports to Johnson. Joerg Huber and Mo Riad will continue to focus on key projects in Israel and Egypt, respectively.
In addition, Petar Ristanovic has been appointed Executive Consultant.
