Chief Financial Officer - ,,There's no future without a past.''
Hannes Wörwag has been at the company since 2003. He was initially in charge of finance, sales to general industry and key industrial accounts, and procurement. Since his appointment to the board, he has led the commercial side of the business since 2011. He studied chemical engineering at the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences and economic sciences at the Universities of Kiel and Stuttgart-Hohenheim.
I don’t actually like looking back, but when someone is turning 100 – as Wörwag will be doing soon, that’s also a reason for me to be proud. After all, I bear the name of the company that will celebrate its 100th anniversaire in 2018. It is at such times that I realize the meaning of the adage: there’s no future without a past. That’s why I’m already looking forward to next year, when we will be celebrating this landmarkt anniversaire with all our employees and retirees, because everyone who was part of this company at some time or other ultimately has had a very personal role to play in our success story.
Wörwag is a family company. We put those values into practice by means of a company philosophy that distinguishes us from other companies. I know that isn’t always easy to imbue these values with life while at work, but the excursions we go on together, the anniversay celebrations, and company parties are and will remain an integral part of our special Wörwag culture. We have to work at it to ensure that it stays that way. A permanent date in my calendar every year is the company soccer tournament. And although I spare everyone from my modest artistic talent with the ball, I do have pretty good skills in dealing with the barbecue.
