Executive Board - Corporate Management

Around 9,000 employees worldwide are working to develop the right answers to the questions of the future. This creates new products, systems and services that make our customers' lives a little easier every day. The Wilo Group is managed and steered by the Executive Board of WILO SE, which has consisted of four members since 1 January 2020.

Vorstand der Wilo Gruppe: Georg Weber (CTO), Oliver Hermes (Vorstandsvorsitzender und CEO), Mathias Weyers (CFO) und Dr. Patrick Niehr (CCO)

How the Executive Board manages the Wilo Group

To manage the Wilo Group, the Executive Board focuses in particular on the development of net sales and profitability. Earnings power is based on operating profit, EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) and the EBIT margin. Management at both Group level and at the levels of the Wilo Group's three organisational and management dimensions (regions, market segments, product areas/divisions) is consistently based on these core management indicators.

Non-financial aspects also play an important role in the successful entrepreneurial development of the Wilo Group. These are therefore of fundamental importance for the strategic and operational management of the Wilo Group, albeit to a lesser extent than the financial control parameters described.
