Clayton chief executive for Schneider Electric in the USA

Schneider Electric in the USA has appointed Annette Clayton as new president.

She will be based in Andover/Massachusetts, the French company’s headquarters in the United States. Clayton came to Schneider Electric from Dell in 2011, after having worked for 23 years at General Motors in a variety of positions.

However, in addition to her new appointment she will continue to serve as chief supply chain officer for the group as a whole and thus remains a member of the executive committee at company headquarters.

Schneider Electric employs about 30,000 people in the USA and in 2015 it had a turnover of USD 7.3 bn (EUR 6.5 bn).
