Janet Dixon has been promoted from strategic buyer to purchasing executive at Siemens Traffic Controls, the traffic management division of Siemens UK.
She has overall responsibility for goods and services with a multi-million pound budget.
Siemens Traffic Control makes road management systems, including electronic variable roadside signs and gantry messageboards most often found on motorways.
Dixon now oversees all direct procurement for the systems, including underground cabling and overhead detection units for pedestrian crossings.
"I also liaise closely with logistics to make sure our equipment is delivered, right to the roadside if necessary," she said.
Her indirect responsibilities cover everything for running the division, including stationery, petrol, car hire and training for the entire division.
