Schneider Electric announces new Vice President of Industrial Automation in the UK & Ireland

27 November 2020

Schneider Electric has announced the appointment of Mark Yeeles as Vice President of Industrial Automation in the UK and Ireland. Yeeles will take over from Martin Walder, who will move into a new European role, overseeing Industrial Automation Transformation in Europe.

Yeeles will play a fundamental role in driving forward Industrial Automation in the region, with a specific focus on increasing the uptake of interoperable automation software. While the sector has yet to feel the full benefits of digitalisation and automation, Yeeles will help to make its potential a reality, fuelling the next phase of fast-paced growth in the UK and Ireland.

In the midst of a period of intense change following Covid-19, the importance of remote management, advanced robotics, and predictive analytics solutions has never been higher. With a specific focus on the CPG, food and beverage, and water and water waste markets, Yeeles will be tasked with helping partners and clients meet a new set of challenges.

“Mark is the right person to continue the growth of the Industrial Automation division,” said Mike Hughes, Zone President UK&I at Schneider Electric. “Over his 25 years’ in the industry including five with Schneider Electric, he has consistently proven his understanding of the market challenges our customers and partners face and how Schneider can help them. He brings great skills, knowledge and a fantastic ability to exceed customer expectations to the role.”

Commenting on the appointment Yeeles said, “I am absolutely delighted with the opportunity to lead the Industrial Automation team in the UK & Ireland. 2021 will be a year of great change with many opportunities for the sector to transform. We must embrace software collaboration and broaden our technological horizons to meet the challenges ahead. I cannot wait to start delivering innovations to our client and partner networks, whilst empowering them to meet their sustainability targets.”
