During his career with Siemens, he has held several management positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president of services and sales and general manager of the Electronics Assembly Business Unit.

Before being named acting EA vice president, Timms had a four-year assignment as the division's vice president of marketing and sales. In this position, he was responsible for all aspects of positioning, pricing, distribution and selling of EA products and services throughout the Americas.
