I spotted this news on Reuters on my RSS feeds this morning. The relevant quotes
The industry sector has six sub-divisions: Industry Automation, Motion Control, Building Technologies, Industry Solutions, Mobility and Osram — its lighting unit.
By autumn, Chief Executive Peter Loescher and Siegfried Russwurm, head of the industry division, plan to dissolve industry solutions and transfer that unit’s 30,000 employees to other parts of the division.
There are many different technologies and markets in the Industry Sector. It has got to be hard to manage at the top level. Any reorg may not have much impact on Industry Automation and Motion Control (the divisions I’m most interested in). Siemens has declined comment. But it could be interesting.
