Fujitsu Siemens appoints CEO

Customer-focused, forward looking fine-tuner

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has named Paul Stodden its new president and CEO. The appointment of Stodden, formerly head of IT services at Siemens, follows last month's ousting of joint presidents Winfried Hoffmann and Robert Hoog. Fifty-two-year-old Stodden worked at IBM Deutschland and General Electric Medical Systems Germany before joining Siemens in 1987. "We have the engine of a great company and I want to fine-tune this into a customer-focused and forward-thinking company for the future," Stodden said. Fujitsu Siemens last month confirmed it would not meet its profits targets for its first six months of business, ended 31 March. ® Related Stories Fujitsu Siemens sacks all the President's men Fujitsu Siemens PC sales don't shine
