June 22, 2010: Schneider Electric Appoints Drees U.S. President

PALATINE, Ill. - Schneider Electric announced that Jeff Drees has assumed the role of the company’s United States president. In this role, the company said Drees will be accountable for driving growth and profitability of Schneider Electric in the U.S., as well as coordinating the company’s energy efficiency and solutions initiatives across all businesses.

“Having worked closely with Jeff over the last few years, I have seen firsthand his ability to drive growth in our business and motivate and inspire his team,” said Chris Curtis, president and CEO of Schneider Electric in North America. “We are uniquely positioned to help solve our energy dilemma and Jeff has the passion and leadership needed to lead these efforts in our company and with our customers.”

Drees previously served as president of the Buildings business of Schneider Electric in the Americas, where he was responsible for overseeing the business’ performance in the U.S., Canada, and Central and South America. Drees joined the company in 2001 and has served in various roles, leading the partner division and Energy Solutions sales, and working with the corporate global office in partner recruitment and acquisition analysis.

Prior to joining Schneider Electric, Drees held management and engineering positions at Caterpillar Inc. and Honeywell Inc., and served as a technician for the U.S. Air Force.

Drees replaces Amy Huntington, who after 22 years with Schneider Electric has decided to leave the company to devote more time to her personal and charitable interests.
