Eric A. Spiegel, president and CEO of Siemens Corporation, will share his perspectives on business and leadership with the Penn State Smeal College of Business on Friday, Sept. 20, as part of the college’s Executive Insights series.

As part of his visit, Spiegel will take part in a moderated discussion with Charles H.

Spiegel joined Siemens in 2010 as president and CEO of Siemens Corporation and CEO of the U.S. Region, where he is responsible for growing the U.S. business in the industry, energy, health care, and infrastructure and cities sectors. He brought with him more than two decades of experience in global consulting with complex organizations in the energy, power, chemical, water, industrial, and automotive fields and expertise on the global energy industry. He holds an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard University.

Siemens is a global engineering and technology company with $22 billion in U.S. sales for the 2011 fiscal year and approximately $5 billion in exports from the U.S. With more than 60,000 American employees and more than 130 manufacturing locations, Siemens is represented in all 50 states.

Spiegel was on campus earlier this year to mark the beginning of a strategic partnership between the company and Penn State. The alliance, which is the first of its kind between Siemens and an American university, includes research collaborations, an enhanced recruiting relationship, and engagement across a range of University programs. The agreement includes collaborations in health care, infrastructure, energy, people development, and sustainability.

Executive Insights is designed to complement the Smeal educational experience by bringing high-profile business leaders to the college to connect with students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Past guests include more than 25 leaders from organizations such as Boeing, Dell, Deloitte, Johnson & Johnson, Kohl’s, KPMG, Procter & Gamble, Samsung, Verizon, and Tumi Holdings, Inc.
