Schnöbel will oversee financial management of the company from its new international headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany, which was established in February as part of Vanderbilt’s agreement to acquire Siemens’ Security Products, part of the Siemens Building Technologies business. The acquisition, scheduled to close in the second quarter of 2015, expands Vanderbilt’s global presence and further boosts its technology and service capabilities.

“Jürgen brings his extensive knowledge of finance and administration on a corporate level to the Vanderbilt team, which will help our company continue to build its presence in the global marketplace,” said Joe Grillo, CEO, Vanderbilt. “His broad knowledge of corporate structure, compliance, financial reporting, IT and HR will serve Vanderbilt as we complete our acquisition of Siemens Security Products, and then improve and grow the business.”
