Siemens Energy, one of the world’s leading energy technology companies, has appointed Dietmar Siersdorfer as managing director for Africa

Siersdorfer, who has been at the company since 1987 and played a critical role in advancing its strategic initiatives across the Middle East as managing director for the region, replaces Nadja Haakansson in a move that will expand his role beyond his current position.

“With abundant natural resources, a growing population, and rising energy demand, Africa has huge potential to drive energy transition, not just across the continent but also around the world,” remarked Siersdorfer. “By aligning our efforts across the Middle East and Africa, we can more effectively address the unique energy challenges they face, from enhancing energy access to advancing sustainable development.”

As the leader of both the Middle East and Africa region, Siersdorfer has been tasked with increasing collaboration and the sharing of best practices in order to realise synergies and accelerate the energy transition in both regions.

Siersdorfer added, “There are significant benefits of harnessing synergies and similarities between these regions to drive innovation, efficiency, and growth for Siemens Energy and our partners.”
