Werner Lakes

During my long business career of more than 35 years, I have worked with many companies in a global environment, pushed innovations with a focus on core competencies, strengthened those competencies and fomented global cooperation.

In cooperation with the management teams for product engineering, production, production planning and procurement, I set in motion initiatives for further growth and increased performance.

My key success factors have always been deep knowledge and understanding of the value stream as well as my “let’s make it happen”-attitude.


Speed, agility and consistent realization. In-depth knowledge of the value stream paired with putting employees in charge. Making employees part of the journey into the future.

Transparency concerning the main adjusting levers. Collaboration with all levels in order to secure growth and profitability.

"Speed, agility and consistent realization. Understanding the value stream, making decisions at the point of maximum impact, putting responsibility where it belongs. Take your employees with you on your journey into the future."
