 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The managing board of Siemens Automotive L.P. today appointed George R. Perry to the position of president and CEO of Siemens Automotive L.P., to head the company's North American operations.
 As president and CEO, Perry will take on increased responsibility as a member of the managing board of Siemens Automotive L.P., and will also continue as vice president and general manager of Siemens Automotive Group's Induction, Fuel and Emissions Components Division. He will assume his new responsibilities effective Oct. 1 of this year. At that time, he will relieve current president and CEO, Anton Huber, who, after nearly five years of service in North America, has been promoted to head the Automotive Group's Climate Control Systems Division headquartered in Rodach, Germany.
 In his role as president and CEO, Perry's priorities will be to continue developing and cultivating cooperative relationships with the U.S. automotive customers. With Siemens' global resources at hand, Perry, like Huber before him, will focus his efforts to penetrate the North American market with advanced automotive electronics systems and solutions designed to improve efficiency, safety and environmental compatibility.
 With his added responsibilities, Perry will support Siemens Automotive L.P. Chairman Dr. Walter Kunerth, who sees Perry's appointment as a reflection of the company's strategy for the rapidly increasing role that automotive electronics is continuing to play in the automobile. "We expect Siemens Automotive Systems Group to significantly increase its annual revenue from today's $1.6 billion," Kunerth said. He added, "I am confident that Mr. Perry's successful record with Siemens, coupled with his extensive global experience in the field of automotive systems and components, will enable us to continue to further capitalize on this growth market opportunity."
 Perry will play an integral role in the realization of Siemens' growth expectations and increased market penetration in North America, according to Kunerth.
 Perry is no stranger to Siemens Automotive business activities, both in North America and worldwide. Since 1987, he has served as vice president and general manager of the company's Actuators and Fuel Systems Components Division based in Newport News, Va., which recently has expanded its activity to include Siemens Automotive's Induction and Emissions Control Products business. During his stint as the head of the Newport News operation, Perry managed a period of dynamic growth as a global supplier of high-quality gasoline fuel injectors and wet fuel delivery components to many of the world's leading car makers. He has been able to apply his experience in world class manufacturing practices during assignments in Japan, Europe and the U.S. to build a globally competitive business for Siemens Automotive.
 Perry made the transition from the aerospace industry to the automotive industry in 1972, joining Ford Motor Company as an engineer at the car maker's Research and Engineering Center in Dearborn, Mich. In 1975, Perry joined Bendix Corporation where he served in various engineering and management positions at the company's operations in the U.S. and in France. From 1984-1987, he served as a vice president of Quality and Reliability for the global automotive operations of Bendix, Fram, Autolite and Garrett before accepting his current position in Newport News.
 Siemens Automotive is one of only three independent first-tier suppliers capable of supplying the international automotive industry's full spectrum of needs for the most advanced electronic systems available to enhance safety, ensure optimum engine control, and to ultimately increase overall driving comfort. The company supplies more than 700 products comprising the entire range of electronic and electrical components for vehicles.
