Steven Dietz

Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary

Originally From: A small farming community in Western Kansas, US

Currently based: Plano, Texas, US

Education: Bachelor of Science in Finance from Kansas State University; Juris Doctor, Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law

Siemens tenure: Joined Siemens Digital Industries Software in 2012

Using technology for good: I love the way that our technology at Siemens helps people, from someone driving a well-designed car to someone who receives life-saving medications or blood units via a drone designed with our software.

Adapting the business: The legal group at Siemens Digital Industries Software is full of people dedicated to their profession and the company. I often see people who have been in the organization for many years learning about new areas of the law and new ways to approach an issue to help the business.

Stay focused: Siemens Digital Industries Software is the most customer-focused company for which I have ever worked. If something doesn’t result in value for the customer, why are we discussing it?

Family man: When I’m not in the office, you can find me doing something with my wife who, amazingly, doesn’t seem to mind spending time with me. You can always ask me about my grandchildren.
