Siemens Healthcare Management Reorganized with Bernd Montag as CEO
Siemens’ Hermann Requardt is stepping down from the Managing Board and his position as Healthcare CEO to enable a generation change at the launch of the new Siemens Healthcare company.
Gerhard Cromme, chairman of the supervisory board of Siemens AG, thanked Requardt for his nearly nine years of successful work on the Managing Board – initially as head of research and then, since the end of 2008, as Healthcare CEO.
“Under the direction of Professor Requardt, Siemens’ Healthcare has further strengthened its leading position on the world markets,” said Cromme.
Effective Feb. 1, 2015, the Managing Board appointed Bernd Montag as chief executive officer, Michael Reitermann member of the executive management and Michael Sen as chief financial officer of the health care business, which is separately managed within Siemens AG. These men will hold the same positions in the management team of the future Healthcare GmbH. Bernd Montag is currently CEO of Imaging & Therapy Systems at Healthcare, Michael Reitermann is CEO of Healthcare’s Diagnostics business, and Michael Sen is Healthcare CFO.
“Mr. Requardt and the managers and employees of Healthcare can be quite proud of their highly successful work together over the past years,” Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG, said. “I have the greatest respect for Mr. Requardt’s decision to make way for a generation change. We are now setting up Healthcare as a separately managed business within Siemens in order to pave the way for an equally successful future in a highly dynamic market and innovation-driven environment. This is now the task of Bernd Montag, Michael Reitermann and Michael Sen. They will have the full support of the Managing Board and their direct partner, Board member Siegfried Russwurm, who worked in the company’s former Medical Engineering and Medical Solutions units for 10 years.” •
