Fujitsu Siemens Computers has announced the appointment of Bernd Bischoff as president and chief executive officer of the company.

The company said Bischoff is at present executive vice-president of sales, marketing and customer services, and will replace Adrian van Hammerstein, who will take on a new challenge as head of Siemens Business Services.

Bischoff joined Siemens three years ago and has successfully led the realignment of the sales organisation along customer segments, the implementation of a channel-centric sales model, the rebuilding of the marketing organisation, and the ongoing development of the company's service capabilities.
 
The company believes that under the leadership of Bischoff, it will continue to focus on mobility and business-critical computing, and will continue to grow business Europe-wide.
 
"We have already achieved a lot over the last few years under Adrian van Hammerstein's leadership and we have an excellent basis for future growth. I will continue to focus on this, together with the management team, our employees and our partners. I am looking forward to this new and exciting challenge," Bischoff said. 

Van Hammerstein has been with the company since its establishment in 1999, first as chief financial officer and then as president and chief executive.

During this time the company said it has made major progress in terms of strategic direction, operational excellence, financial performance and market reputation. Van Hammerstein will continue to remain closely associated with Fujitsu Siemens, as a member of its board of directors.
