As the Biden administration settles into the US presidency, Siemens USA has bolstered its government affairs team to further advance its interests across a range of areas including mobility.

The company has appointed Brie Sachse as head of government affairs, with a remit to drive Siemens' legislative and policy agenda.

She joined Siemens in 2013 as a senior leader on the corporate and public affairs team and also held positions in the Obama-Biden Administration at the US Department of Transportation and Federal Railroad Administration.

Sachse will oversee the team’s stakeholder engagement with policymakers, industry and business associations in Washington, DC, and nationwide.

Siemens USA also made two promotions, elevating Abby Campbell-Singer to head of climate and infrastructure policy and Harrison Wadsworth to head of digital and transportation policy.

“This core team of seasoned public policy experts will play a crucial role in bringing a policy lens to the opportunities where Siemens technologies and services can help address our nation’s most significant challenges,” said Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA.

David McCarthy is joining the Washington, DC, team in a newly-created role as policy & legislative analyst while a new director of external affairs, Ryan Dalton, will be based in New York City.
