An impressive career to date

Between 1998 and 2004, Elisabeth had multiple roles in various operative capacities at Siemens AG in Germany, Singapore and China. She then held positions between 2005 and 2009 which included management functions in the areas of procurement and controlling, as well as in manufacturing.
