Siemens Mobility ANZ names new CEO

Transport solutions provider Siemens Mobility has named Raphaelle Guerineau as its new chief executive officer in Australia and New Zealand.

Guerineau, previously head of products and operations for Siemens Mobility in ASEAN Pacific, has been tasked with driving strategic growth and managing roughly 650 employees in Australia and New Zealand.

She is the first CEO for Siemens Mobility in Australia, following its recent establishment as a separately managed company of Siemens AG.

Michel Obadia, Siemens Mobility’s Asia Pacific CEO, said Guerineau was bringing a wealth of experience to a growing business.

“There’s growing demand for the products manufactured at our facility in Port Melbourne and for the services provided by our rail specialists. In addition to this, the team at MRX in Perth, a company we recently welcomed to our family, are doing some great work here in Australia and on global projects such as Thameslink in London,” Obadia noted.

Guerineau has been with Siemens since 2011, working as head of projects in Singapore, and as head of tendering for ASEAN Pacific. Before joining Siemens she worked with Alstom in Singapore, including as project manager for the signalling portion of the Circle Line.

Siemens Mobility’s portfolio includes rollingstock, rail automation and electrification, turnkey systems, intelligent traffic systems and related services.

Guerineau said she was pleased to be appointed to the new role during an “exciting phase” for the business.

“From our role in significant projects such as the level crossings removal in Victoria, North West Rail Link in Sydney, Gold Coast Light Rail in Queensland, KiwiRail work in New Zealand and to a new world-class data centre in Perth, our people are doing some fantastic work across the region,” she said.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to lead this team of experts and I look forward to it.”
