Siemens Appoint a New UK General Counsel
6th March 2012
Siemens announced the appointment of a new UK general counsel and company secretary recently, after Gerard Gent retired from the role.
The company’s legal recruitment team searched extensively, eventually offering the role to Vodafone legal director Claire Carless; who agreed to take up the position. Gerard Gent retires from the company after 16 years heading up Siemens’ legal function and Claire, with her extensive legal background, should make for an excellent replacement.
Roland Aurich, Siemens chief executive, commented on the appointment, saying: "I am delighted that Claire Carless has joined us as our general counsel. It is a fascinating time for our company as we consolidate and grow our UK business."
Carless will be working alongside Peter Solmssen, Siemens global GC, and the company are confident that the new addition to the legal team will strengthen Siemens overall.
