Born in South African, Clarkson is well positioned to lead the local operation of the electronic and engineering multinational that has had a presence in the country for over 110 years, having served with the organisation both in South Africa and internationally since 1981.

In this time, Clarkson has filled various leadership roles culminating in his appointment in 2007 as divisional director for Siemens Industrial Solutions and Services (I&S) on his return to the country, and later as head of the newly formed Siemens Industry Sector in South Africa.

As South Africa faces a number challenges, including the effects of a worldwide economic recession, Clarkson believes the prudent fiscal policies adopted by government in the past and increased spending in public infrastructure and power – two of Siemens’ areas of competence, will ensure the local operation continues to perform well.

“Given our extensive expertise and track record in supporting the South African government and the private sector in the fields of energy, industry, healthcare as well as information and communication technologies, I look forward to expanding our role and enhancing our contribution to the growth and development of the South African economy,” he says.
