Siemens today announced that Daryl Dulaney has been appointed chief executive officer of the company's newly-formed Infrastructure & Cities (IC) Sector in North America, which comprises the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America.

Dulaney also will continue to serve as president and chief executive officer of Siemens Industry, Inc., the legal entity comprising both the Infrastructure & Cities and Industry Sectors in the United States.

The IC Sector will be organized into five divisions:

  • Building Technologies
  • Low and Medium Voltage (power distribution for utilities and facilities)
  • Mobility and Logistics (traffic, transport and logistics management)
  • Rail Systems (rail vehicles)
  • Smart Grid (intelligent power grids).

Under this new structure, the divisions will not only continue to serve their established customer base, but also more closely align their respective businesses with their target markets, enabling Siemens to bundle its solutions for mobility, environmental protection and energy savings into one comprehensive offering.

"Cities face challenges of providing safe, comfortable and sustainable environments that enable a high quality of life for citizens and that make them attractive to businesses," says Dulaney. "The new sector is well positioned, with 87,000 employees worldwide and the most comprehensive portfolio in the market, to minimize those challenges by delivering solutions to city halls, utilities and transportation authorities to make them more competitive and sustainable for the future."

The division leads for North America reporting to Daryl Dulaney are:

  • Michael Cahill, president, Rail Systems
  • Thierry Godart, president, Smart Grid
  • Terry Heath, president, Mobility and Logistics
  • Andreas Schierenbeck, president, Building Technologies
  • Kevin Yates, president, Low and Medium Voltage.

With more than 30 years experience at Siemens, Dulaney was named president and chief executive officer of Siemens Industry, Inc. in Oct. 2009. Prior to that, he was the U.S. CEO of Siemens Building Technologies, Inc., a premier provider of energy and environmental solutions, building controls and fire safety and security systems.

After his appointment to CEO in 2005, Dulaney guided Building Technologies through a transformation that resulted in unprecedented revenue growth and record profitability. Dulaney joined Building Technologies as a sales engineer in 1979. He has held several key managerial positions throughout his career, ranging from joint venture management in Hong Kong to senior vice president of field operations, North America. Additionally, Dulaney led the Building Automation business unit of Building Technologies to four consecutive years of double-digit increases in sales, profit, and economic value added.
