Siemens tenure: I joined Siemens in 1992 and have been having fun building new products ever since. Some of my favorites are NX Wave, the NX Atlas Platform, and Teamcenter X.
Problem solvers: We’re very customer-focused—everything we do is about solving our customers’ problems. We have the best customers in the world. We apply the latest technology to solve their challenges—often inventing powerful new solutions along the way. While our customers are producing the most innovative products in the world, we are supporting them with the most innovative software in the world. We’re in this together. Making our customers successful makes Siemens successful.
Team dynamics: One of my career lessons is “Life is a team sport, so build a great team!” Our team is focused on building the data backbone for Xcelerator and our comprehensive digital twin. This means we must connect with every domain within Siemens Digital Industries Software. It takes an exceptional team to do this. I’m very proud to be working for a truly global company that is a trusted partner to bring talented people and innovation together, solving some of today’s most challenging problems.
Finding the balance: It's important to find the balance in your life. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys, preferably outside, especially at the beach. And you have to take care of yourself. My parents gave me a fitness tracker and it’s really been the gift that keeps on giving.
Innovations then and now: I’m into science. The discovery of the structure of DNA and how it powers life is one of the great stories of all time. Now, software is changing the world. I’m excited to be working on software, but even more excited to help our customers make the next generation of products that are changing the world.
