Siemens has appointed Pham Thai Lai as the new CEO of Siemens ASEAN and Singapore, effective from this month.

Lai will retain his position as the Country CEO of Siemens Vietnam, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Lai started his career in Siemens in 1997 in the company’s Corporate Research unit in Princeton, USA. He then took on various corporate strategy, product development, sales and management roles in the now-defunct mobile phones division, as well as the healthcare, energy and building technologies divisions, in the US, Europe and Asia.

In his new role as Siemens ASEAN’s CEO, Lai will help to sharpen the company’s industrial core of digital industries, smart infrastructure and mobility businesses in the region. — VNS
