The Siemon Company announced Henry Siemon is the company’s new president and chief executive officer, effective January 1, 2021. Carl Siemon, who served as president and CEO since 1982, will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors and will work with Henry and the company’s leadership team as a strategic advisor. Henry becomes the fifth CEO in the company’s 118-year history, and establishes a fifth generation of family leadership.

Henry joined Siemon in 2017, serving as global director of supply chain, focusing on initiatives to improve the company’s operational capabilities in the 150 countries it serves. He earned a bachelor’s degree with a focus on economics from the University of Richmond and earned an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. Prior to joining Siemon, Henry worked at Apple Inc., where he joined that company’s global supply chain strategy team, then later led reseller operations teams for a number of products. Prior to joining Apple, Henry worked for Deloitte Consulting, advising on organizational and operations strategy.

Carl Siemon praised the values, talent, business sense and drive that Henry brings to the CEO position: “I am pleased and proud to welcome Henry as Siemon’s next president. We are fortunate to have a fifth-generation Siemon family member willing and able to chart a clear course and steer the company into the future. I know that the commitment to quality and innovation that has come to represent the Siemon brand will be embraced and enhanced by Henry. Having seen Henry in action under fire this year, creatively solving problems caused by the global pandemic, has validated the soundness of the succession-planning decision our board made two years ago. The company will be in good hands, and I look forward to going where Henry leads us.”

Henry acknowledged the importance of Carl Siemon’s contributions guiding the company’s development and growth over nearly four decades. “Carl and I often talk about stewardship, and how important it is in a family business for the chief executive to also be a chief caretaker and to always be mindful of our responsibility to continuously improve and to have fun along the way,” he said. “Each of my predecessors has left their own lasting mark on Siemon’s success, but perhaps none so much as Carl. During his time as CEO, Siemon has evolved from a U.S. manufacturer into a leading global solution provider that is well-positioned for continued growth and innovation. I am fortunate to take the reins of such a healthy organization and look forward to serving our company, customers, and partners in the year ahead.”
