In my role at Reckitt Benckiser, I had the pleasure of working with Werner over an extended period of time, on a wide variety of Cost of Goods saving and Overhead Reduction projects. The overall program was focused on improving gross margins as well as product net contribution and was a significant generator of increased profitability that could be allocated to Brand Development and growth of Sales Revenue. He was strongly engaged with the various teams/businesses and always highly results orientated. Werner successfully led the implementation process, from idea generation and assessment to implementation and performance tracking with the establishment of an extremely strong pipeline of cost improvement projects. His strong analytical skills and creative thinking, combined with excellent process knowledge brought the best out of everyone he interacted with and effectively generated a high Return on Investment.
