Tom White resigns from Siemens UK

Tom White has resigned as CEO of Siemens UK. Horst J Kayser, who was previously the head of Corporate Strategy, takes over. Kayser has the title CEO of Siemens' North West Europe "cluster", a €9bn-revenue region for the company that encompasses the UK and eleven other countries.

It's been a difficult time for Siemens. Earlier this month they lost the DWP contract in the UK; which was one of the reasons behind Siemens' recent profit warning. As my (ex-) Ovum colleague Phil Codling remarked "the appointment of Kayser suggests rather closer control of the UK operation within Siemens".
