Division Manager


Explanation:
Siemens is divided in "Divisions".

A company for which I have translated several training courses is delivering seminars to several Siemens' Divisions.

Hope this helps! :-)

head of business segment


Explanation:
That's a common financial term, nothing Siemens-specific. Geschäftszweig is business segment and Leiter is its boss.

business division manager


Explanation:
It does not seem to be an expression particular to Siemens. "Geschäftszweig" means "line of business" (Dietl/Lorenz, Dictionary of Legal, Commercial and Political Terms) or "branch of business" (Routledge, Dictionary of Business, Commerce and Finance).
