He joins the Mechanical Drives business, having spent seven years working for Siemens Industry Automation & Drives Technologies, originally looking after the North West region, and latterly looking after key accounts such as United Utilities and Scottish Water.

General manager at Siemens Mechanical Drives, Simon Nadin commented: “Jason’s appointment will bring a step change in our strategy for growth in key markets. His experience of the electronics side of the business will enable us to further underpin our sales support in the drive train area. He brings a wealth of experience from both inside and outside Siemens.”
