Mike Caliel Is New Invensys CEO
By Control Global Staff
In mid-December. Invensys plc announced the appointment of Michael Caliel as president and CEO of Invensys Operations Management beginning on Jan. 1, 2012.
Caliel was previously with Invensys from 1993 to 2006, lastly as chief executive of Invensys Process Systems, the largest of the predecessor companies that were brought together to form Invensys Operations Management in early 2009. He has over 25 years experience in the industry, and was until recently CEO of Integrated Electrical Services Inc.
He is taking over from Sudipta Bhattacharya, who joined Invensys in 2007 as president of the Wonderware Software division, and has been the leader of Invensys Operations Management since February 2009. Bhattacharya will take up a new role outside Invensys.
In the meantime, he will be working with Caliel to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities within the division, and will also be assisting on group business development in the Middle East and Asia.
Wayne Edmunds, the chief executive of Invensys plc, commented: "I am delighted to welcome Mike back to Invensys into a role which is very familiar to him. He has first-class experience in the industries in which the division operates—our customers as well as our products and technologies. His enthusiasm and drive will now be directed to building on the division's strong market positions.
"I would like to thank Sudipta for his tremendous efforts over the past four years, where we have continually shown double digit growth at Wonderware and then at Invensys Operations Management, and wish him every success in the future. Invensys Operations Management has shown strong growth since its formation, and Sudipta has built an excellent management team to take the business forward under Mike's leadership."
Caliel said that he is excited to return to Invensys and take the helm at the Operations Management division.
"I have many friends at Invensys and have first-hand knowledge of the talented people who are in place around the world making a positive impact on Invensys customers," said Caliel. "I'm looking forward to reconnecting with customers, partners and others in the industry as we continue building on the success of Invensys Operations Management, and executing against the strong strategy we have in place."
