How are you settling in?

Peter Austin, general manager, Siemens Motor Contracts

How was your first day?
I spent it at headquarters in Stansted getting to know the team and understand the key issues the business faces.

How does your new role differ from your last job?
On top of my new responsibilities, I’ve also kept my original responsibilities for our vendor finance business – this is an additional role for me.

What are you working on at the moment?
A new strategy. We have ambitious growth plans, and I’m pleased to be playing a part in the next phase of development.

Describe a typical day
My schedule doesn’t have typical days, as it is such a diverse job – which, in my view, is fantastic.

How do you relax?
I am blessed with four children aged between six and 13, who are more than helpful in getting me to “switch off” after work.
