Mr. Peter Wohlfahrt ​

My „waste—treatment-passion“ started back in 2013 during my time as “Sales Director USA” for a German recycling plant manufacturer. Throughout these years I built up a strong network and gained deep knowledge on suppliers, technologies and procedural techniques to be able to plan and design complex recycling plants.
I do have high skills on networking, business – and research & development as well as high expertise on new groundbreaking technologies. One of my current beacon projects is the consulting of one of the world’s leading companies in the electronics sector on the achievement of their self-set, CSR recycling goals.

Mr Reinhold Werthmann

Before starting my work as consultant, I held the position of Director HR in international companies for more than 30 years in the chemical and metal industry and most recently at a textile manufacturer responsible for 10.000+ employees in numerous worldwide, mainly European and Asian locations.

My focus is on HR consulting, recruiting and talent identification as well as restructuring organizations,

Interim-management and training. I am strong in the motivation of teams and their leaders and the evolvement or redevelopment of team spirits.

Not having an operative circular economy or waste industry background, I do have the capability to analyse and capture pros and cons of existing and planned set ups and team structures from a neutralized “just HR and people business” perspective.

I am strong in finding the right organisational structures, motivating, teaming up the right talents and team members and leading them or their managers with my hands-on mentality to the agreed and targeted goals.

My many years of expertise in human resources and with people on eye-to-eye level, are the basis for goal-oriented solutions for companies, team members and talents.
