Siemens has strengthened its Partner 2020 programme in preparation for the future of manufacturing. A number of significant appointments, including Andrew Reeks as the new UK & Ireland Partner Strategy Manager, demonstrate Siemens’ commitment to authorised partners.
Andrew Reeks will be working alongside and leading an enhanced Authorised Partner team. An additional 20 account managers have now been recruited to support the Siemens Partner 2020 programme. This will ensure partners not only readily receive the benefit of Siemens’ combined knowledge and understanding of manufacturing, grounded in 170 years of history; but also that together Siemens and its partners have the insight to advise manufacturers on future technology trends.
Siemens and its partners will help manufacturers make sense of an increasingly complex landscape and make wise investments in technology to remain globally competitive. Through the partners’ local expertise and technical know-how, Siemens aims to increase the speed and scope of technology deployment across the region bringing faster productivity gains and cost efficiencies for UK and Ireland manufacturing.
With extensive experience across the UK manufacturing supply chain, Andrew is committed to Siemens’ vision of making the Future of Manufacturing a reality in the UK & Ireland in close conjunction with authorised partners. Highly knowledgeable in areas including manufacturing, chemical, labour and energy costs, Andrew has an acute understanding of the implications these have on operational management.
Andrew draws on 15 years’ expertise at Siemens to operate at a strategic level in this position. Beginning his career with Imperial Chemical Industries, Andrew worked within the Industrial sector for more than a decade before joining Siemens in 2000 as an Instrument Sales Engineer. Swiftly progressing, Andrew served for a number of years as Siemens’ Municipal Water Business Manager, a position that saw him advise on the UK water industry and bolster the company’s position in the marketplace.
