German engineering giant Siemens (SIEGn.DE) named finance chief Joe Kaeser, a 33-year company veteran, as its new boss after dumping Chief Executive Peter Loescher four years before the end of his contract following a series of profit warnings.

Years of breakneck expansion and forays into new businesses, including an ill-fated detour into solar energy which led to a billion-euro loss, have left Siemens in disarray and lagging rivals such as General Electric (GE.N) in terms of profitability.
