Patron of the Arts

For its contributions to the blossoming arts scene in Singapore, in particular Siemens’ support for the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO), the company was named Associate of the Arts 2008 by the National Arts Council for the sixth year running.

Lothar Herrmann, CEO, Siemens Pte Ltd, likened Siemens to the SSO: "Just as the SSO is committed to the flowering of the Arts in Singapore, raising the bar year after year to bring top quality music to Singapore, Siemens also prides ourselves in contributing to the economic and technological development of Singapore."

Given out yearly, the Associate of the Arts award was instituted in 1986 to recognize individuals and organizations which have contributed between $50,000 and $99,999 to the Arts yearly.
