Atlanta, GA— Siemens Energy & Automation appointed Jeff Timms to be vice president of its Electronics Assembly Systems Division (EA) effective immediately. Timms was named acting vice president earlier this year to fill a position vacated when Vice President Guenter Lauber accepted a senior leadership position with the A&D global Electronics Assembly Systems Division in Munich, Germany.
"Jeff is a results driven leader with more than 23 years of business experience,” said Aubert Martin, president and CEO, Siemens Energy and Automaton. "His in-depth knowledge of the printed circuit board and surface mount technology business will enable him to lead the division forward with a strong focus on our customers, operational excellence and market leadership.”
Prior to joining Siemens in 1997 as manager of global key accounts and product marketing, Timms had a 13-year career with Universal Instruments, a subsidiary of the Dover Corporation, which serves the global electronic assembly and manufacturing market. During his career with Siemens, he has held several management positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president of services and sales and general manager of the Electronics Assembly Business Unit.
Before being named acting EA vice president, Timms had a four-year assignment as the division's vice president of marketing and sales. In this position, he was responsible for all aspects of positioning, pricing, distribution and selling of EA products and services throughout the Americas.
Timms holds a Bachelors degree in business from Norwich University in Montpelier, VT, and a degree in electrical technology. He has served on various industry councils and advisory boards, and is currently the Chairman of the IPC APEX Trade Show Committee.
