Uwe Reitz

Dr.-Ing. Uwe Reitz

Uwe Reitz, all my life I have been involved with organisation and management, working passionately towards a goal, developing and implementing strategies and plans. In industry I have made this my profession. As business manager first for a plant and then globally, or as quality and EHS manager for large, globally operating units.

During my time in service and as a quality and EHS manager, I have internalized service and consulting. I enjoy my contribution when business and processes are running. As a business manager, I have dealt with all the processes of a product, project and service business. I can therefore advise companies in general, but I would like to highlight a few core issues here: Project management, process management, management system, organization, quality management, occupational safety, employee participation. I have moved primarily in the metal and electrical industry, internationally.

My aim is to find pragmatic and sustainable solutions and implement them consistently.
