The Board of Directors of Siemens Gamesa has appointed Christian Bruch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Siemens Energy AG and member of Siemens Gamesa’s Board of Directors, as its new non-executive Chairman.
Born in 1970 in Düsseldorf, Germany, Bruch holds a doctorate in engineering from the Swiss Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH), Switzerland. He studied mechanical engineering at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, and at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, United Kingdom. Before becoming the President and CEO of Siemens Energy AG in 2020, he held senior positions in companies such as Linde AG or RWE AG. The change of the Chairman is the logical next step in the potential takeover and subsequent integration of Siemens Gamesa into Siemens Energy. Bruch will succeed Miguel Ángel López, who has chosen to leave the company and seek new challenges.
The Board of Directors of Siemens Gamesa has also appointed Anton Steiger as a new board member today. At Siemens Energy AG, Steiger is currently responsible for all legal aspects of the takeover and integration of Siemens Gamesa into Siemens Energy.
