Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced the appointment of Michael Lotfy Gierges as Executive Vice President for its global Home & Distribution division.

Working out of Schneider Electric’s US headquarters in Boston, Gierges will lead Schneider Electric’s drive to bring the Electricity 4.0 revolution to homes through enhanced electrification and digitalization. With homes producing 20% of greenhouse gas emissions, Schneider’s Home & Distribution teams across the globe are focusing on delivering innovative Home Energy Management Solutions to try to bring about a zero-carbon future and help consumers reach their energy and sustainability goals.

Having joined the company as Senior Vice President of Power Products over North and Central America just over a year ago, Gierges is Schneider Electric’s youngest executive to lead a global business division. He will report to Executive Vice President of Energy Management Olivier Blum.

Under Gierges’ leadership, the Home & Distribution division will leverage Schneider Electric’s innovation to empower homeowners and tenants to make their homes efficient, resilient and sustainable. In close partnership with distributors, retailers, electricians, home builders and interior designers, Gierges will lead the Home and Distribution division in bringing Schneider Electric’s solutions to end customers.

Gierges brings more than 20 years of professional experience to this new position. In his previous role, he was Senior Vice President of Power Products for the North American Hub where he oversaw the business unit portfolio’s double-digit growth in sales and launched five innovative products to the electrical industry. Additionally, Gierges was instrumental in spearheading DE&I initiatives for the Schneider Electric Power Products division.
