Rockwell Automation has appointed Mariya Prempeh as its new Country Manager for Singapore.
She will report to Rockwell’s regional director for Southeast Asia, Marcelo Tarkieltaub.
Prempeh joins Rockwell Automation from Leica Geosystems (part of Hexagon), where she was the Singapore general manager.
Prior to this, Mariya was with Hilti Corporation, a multinational company that develops, manufactures, and markets products for the construction, building maintenance, energy and manufacturing industries.
Welcoming Prempeh, Tarkieltaub, said her “strong capabilities in leading country operations and nurturing high-performing teams, as well as her knowledge across various tech sectors will help us expand our presence in the region”.
Prempeh said that she is joining to “extend the company’s footprint” in the country, in “key manufacturing sectors” such as life sciences, semiconductors, and oil and gas.
