Landis+Gyr EMEA region appoints Gabriele Riedmann de Trinidad as Vice President of new unit Advanced Metering Services (AMS)

Gabriele Riedmann de Trinidad, 40, has been appointed Vice President AMS effective November 1, 2008.

She joins Landis+Gyr following 16 years at Siemens/Nokia Siemens Networks, where she significantly increased revenue through the development of mobile networks in 14 countries, including Mexico and Indonesia. She also identified and facilitated best practice exchange across Europe and the Americas.

In her new role, Ms. Riedmann de Trinidad will develop and manage the AMS business and ensure that Landis+Gyr customers are provided with a wide range of services during and after Advanced Metering Management (AMM) implementation.

The scope of Landis+Gyr’s AMM service ranges from pre-sales consulting, strategy and bid – management, to deployment, integration and management of AMM systems. It also includes after sales service such as system maintenance and product or software upgrades.

“I am very pleased to welcome Gabriele to Landis+Gyr. Her extensive experience is a highly valued addition to our company and I am looking forward to working with her to serve our EMEA customers even better than before,” says Ad van der Meys, Executive Vice President Landis+Gyr EMEA.

The announcement comes as AMM implementation takes shape across central European markets. AMS from Landis+Gyr compliments its AMM portfolio, offering utilities the opportunity to profit from full service provisioning from an established industry leader.

Earlier this year, Landis+Gyr consolidated its European and UK/Prepayment businesses, forming Landis+Gyr EMEA. Led by Ad van der Meys, the organisation offers utilities across the region systems and services that enable them to optimize their value chain and empower their customers to manage energy better.
