Siemens UK & Ireland appoint Phil Banks as head of strategy for Integrated Drive Systems
PHIL Banks has been appointed as the head of strategy for Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) at Siemens UK & Ireland. As part of his new role, he will be responsible for the development and implementation of the business strategy to drive further growth for IDS solutions.
His new role will see him take responsibility for the delivery of the IDS strategy across Siemens Digital Factory (DF) and Process & Drives (PD) divisions, including leading the IDS team and collaborating with the DF and PD sales teams.
Commenting on his new role, Mr Banks (pictured) said: ‘I am delighted to have been appointed to head the Siemens UK & Ireland IDS strategic offering. I look forward to further developing the answers our customers are looking for around drive systems and how Siemens’ ‘one-stop shop’ for entire drive trains can play a key role for them.
‘Our customers face challenges around digitalization adoption and adhering to new standards, and whether for process applications or in the discrete industries, only consistent integration into the entire production environment is the answer for future-proofed drive applications.’
Brian Holliday, managing director of Siemens Digital Factory UK, added: ‘Phil will prove instrumental in developing and implementing our IDS business strategy across important industrial markets and enable our customers to derive even more value going forward.’
