Alex Gerodimos is to be the new CEO of Siemens-owned Aimsun.
Currently chief operating officer, he replaces Jaime Ferrer, who is stepping down after more than 20 years at the transport modelling software firm.
Markus Schlitt, Siemens ITS CEO, called Gerodimos the 'natural successor' to the role.
“Jaime has taken the company from its inception as a tiny university spin-off to its position today as a valued part of the Siemens Mobility family,” said Gerodimos.
“We will miss Jaime and are all deeply grateful to him for his years of dedication to Aimsun - he has left a solid legacy for us to build on and we look forward to taking the company into the future together.”
In a statement, Ferrer said: “Since the origins of Aimsun, our goal has always been to develop superlative software and provide great service. I feel privileged to have worked with the fantastic team that has made this possible, and to have had customers and clients who have always been so appreciative of our efforts. I’m sure Alex and the team have a brilliant future ahead of them.”
Schlitt added: “In addition to his many years in the transportation industry and with Aimsun, Alex is deeply customer focused and has rich international experience. We have no doubt that he will develop the full potential of Aimsun as a Siemens business.”
