Colm Gavin
Portfolio Development Manager

As a Portfolio Development Manager with Siemens Software, my goal is to ensure that machine and line builders as well as end-users are aware of the Industry 4.0 solutions available to them and how these solutions can benefit their businesses. I leverage my experience in discrete manufacturing to help companies take advantage of the new innovations available with Industry 4.0. Working for Siemens for 20 years, I worked in a variety of roles. Prior to this role, I marketed Siemens’ Totally Integrated Automation Portal software in the US, and also worked on the development of this software in Nuremberg, Germany, focusing mainly on the usability and design aspects of engineering software – especially as required by the U.S. market. Digitalization is changing the way companies manufacture and they are feeling the pressure to increase flexibility, efficiency, and quality while getting to market faster and maintaining safety. Let Siemens and our team help your company on their digital transformation with our Industry 4.0 solutions. Feel free to reach out to me through LinkedIn and visit our website.
