The Charlotte World Trade Association (CWTA) awarded the 2016 Leadership in International Commerce Award to Mark Pringle, recently retired Vice President of Siemens Charlotte Energy Hub. Under Mark’s leadership and vision, the company turned around from the brink of collapse to a massive expansion that resulted in the Charlotte facility becoming the global manufacturing and service hub for Siemens Energy and the nationwide poster child for advanced manufacturing.
