Mumbai, October 18, 2021 – AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation and sustainability, has announced the expansion of its executive leadership team with the appointments of Caspar Herzberg as the company’s new Chief Revenue Officer, and Helen Lamprell, OBE as General Counsel and Company Secretary. The new appointments, in London and Dubai, strengthen AVEVA’s international footprint and digital transformation capabilities at a time when business relies on interconnected solutions for global workforces. Both leaders bring a wealth of global expertise to AVEVA when they join on November 1.
Herzberg has over two decades of international experience within the technology sector. After seven years at Accenture, where he specialised in supply chain optimisation and outsourcing, Herzberg spent ten years at Cisco, where he led sales for mega projects in Saudi Arabia, developed the company’s global smart city strategy, and was global managing director for the emerging solutions advisory business before taking on the position of Vice-President Cisco Consulting Services for Asia Pacific, China, and Japan. For the past five years, he has led Schneider Electric’s business across over 80 countries in the Middle East and Africa.
AVEVA will leverage his deep expertise to lead the global sales organisation and to strengthen the capabilities of partners around the world. Herzberg, who is fluent in English, Arabic, French and German, will be based in Dubai.
Lamprell studied law at Cambridge University and has over twenty years’ experience in the fields of legal and external affairs. Over seven years at Linklaters, she advised on a broad range of matters ranging from emerging markets equities to hybrid capital. She then enjoyed an action-packed 18-year stint at the Vodafone Group and Vodafone UK, where she was most recently General Counsel & External Affairs Director and member of the UK Board. She led many of Vodafone’s biggest deals in the UK and globally, including the landmark Verizon Wireless transaction, before switching to fixing the UK operations in Vodafone’s historic home where Helen had a broad remit ranging from security to communications.
Lamprell was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list for services to business and equality. An advocate for sustainability and diversity, she is currently a non-executive director at the Low Carbon Contracts Company and the Electricity Settlements Company, sister organisations jointly owned by the UK Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy. She remains a director of the not-for-profit Employer’s Initiative on Domestic Abuse, and a member of the UK government’s Women’s Business Council.
Lamprell will be based in London and will lead AVEVA’s legal and company secretarial function globally as the organisation builds on synergies from the recent acquisition of OSIsoft.
