Werner has founded and managed private and public companies in the manufacturing, natural resources & industrial sectors for 35 years. He and his teams have secured over $500 million to successfully execute international growth and diversification programs in Europe, North and South America, Central Asia, and Australia.
Werner helps European startups develop and execute plans for entering North America, and established companies planning to expand into the EU and Eastern Europe. He also advises Corporate and Private Venture Capital programs in re-evaluating the business models of their portfolio companies and determine if they can remain viable during the Covid-19 crisis.
Planning for international growth is complicated and time-consuming. Terminology, business practices, and customs vary significantly from market to market. An experienced advisor can add significant value and accelerate the process while allowing Management to remain focused on running their business.
In his experience, all successful growth initiatives, startups, and turnarounds start with a precise and unbiased understanding of where the business is today: its strengths and weaknesses, demand for its products, and knowledge of its competitors.
Werner works closely with management to understand their business and objectives and then help design and execute the plan. Sound planning is the first step, but rapid and efficient execution is what builds successful companies.
Werner holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is fluent in English and German and is a dual US/EU citizen.
