In 1999 Kaeser joined Corporate Finance where he was responsible for developing a Company-wide performance controlling system. During this time he also shared oversight for preparing the company’s stock market listing in New York and the worldwide conversion of its accounting system to US GAAP.

From April 2001 to September 2004 Kaeser was a member of the Group Executive Committee of IC Mobile and served as its Chief Financial Officer, where he was especially active in managing and restructuring its finance exposure from customer loans and working Capital management.

In his former function as Chief Strategy Officer, Kaeser supported CEO Dr. Klaus Kleinfeld in the design and execution of the Fit4More transformation program, as well as the long-term orientation of the company’s strategies on global megatrends.

In July 2013 it was announced that Kaeser would replace Peter Löscher as the CEO of the Siemens AG.

Russian visit during Crimean Crisis

Kaeser traveled to Russia to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in April, 2014 to re-affirm Siemens' commitment to Russian profits despite widespread international condemnation of Russian military intervention. The move was widely criticized in the Western World, including by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However Kaeser wasn't the only one who had a more pro-Russian mood at that time; many other prominent Germans like former chancellors Helmut Schmidt and Gehard Schroeder voiced their concern for more understanding of Russia's views, including in Merkel's own party like Peter Gauweiler or Armin Laschet who all faced criticism in the German Press as well. Later, former US Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski revealed that the former World Bank Chief Robert Zoellick aggressively pressured Kaeser due to his Russian visit. Zoellick reminded Kaeser that his company has more business in the United States than in Russia, and it would have negative consequences if he kept following the Russian path.
