Henry Siemon — President and CEO
From playing soccer in Siemon’s halls as a child to spending a summer pulling cable with a Siemon certified installer, Henry’s roots in the cabling industry run deep. But even with his close ties to Siemon heritage, he forged his early career outside Watertown. Having earned an Economics degree at University of Richmond and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management, Henry developed a foundation of organizational and operations strategy working for Deloitte Consulting and Apple Inc. Henry joined Siemon in 2017 with a focus on supply chain, working with nearly all teams across the company to gain an end-to-end understanding of the company’s strengths and identify opportunities to further build upon those capabilities. Congratulating Henry on his achievement, Carl N. Siemon offered this insight: “We are fortunate to have a fifth generation Siemon family member willing and able to steer the company into the future. The company is in good hands and I look forward to going where Henry leads us.”
