Siemens has announced that Raphaelle Guerineau will be its new CEO for Siemens Mobility in Australia and New Zealand.
Now leading the business’s transport operations, Guerineau was previously head of products and operations for ASEAN Pacific at Siemens Mobility.
Siemens employs 650 people in Australia, with rail signalling a particular focus.
“Siemens Mobility is working on some of the most critical infrastructure projects underway in Australia. There’s growing demand for the products manufactured at our facility in Port Melbourne and for the services provided by our rail specialists. In addition to this, the team at MRX in Perth, a company we recently welcomed to our family, are doing some great work here in Australia and on global projects such as Thameslink in London,” said Michel Obadia, Asia Pacific CEO of Siemens Mobility.
Guerineau brings with her experience as head of projects in Singapore, and head of tendering for ASEAN Pacific for Siemens, as well as roles for Alstom, Newell Brands, Orange and BTG PLC.
Guerineau noted her new role will involve expansion and grappling with major challenges.
“Siemens Mobility is at an exciting phase of growth with various markets recognising the critical role transport technology plays in building sustainable communities that thrive on a global scale,” she said.
Guerineau cited work on level crossing removal in Victoria, the North West Rail Link in Sydney, Gold Coast Light Rail in Queensland, KiwiRail in New Zealand, and rail data in Perth as significant projects during her tenure.
