Meike Schmidt: “Manager of the Year 2019”

Managing Partner of the Lumberg Group wins the third time reader's choice of the leading European trade journal "Markt & Technik"

Schalksmühle, 24.05.2019. The Lumberg Group is one of the leading providers of connector and contact systems. The competence lies in particular in the in-house development and production of connectors, electromechanical components and mechatronic components of the highest quality. With Meike Schmidt, who has been managing partner in the third generation of the 86 year old Schalksmühle-based company since 2009, the Lumberg Group is much more agile today. With the transformation into a flexible, individual technology company with collaborative development and production of entire assemblies, new markets are opened up and high-value large customers gained despite – and because of – the medium-sized character. The performance, innovation and quick response capability, which shows itself across all core business areas, from automotive, home appliance and building technology, is rewarded by customers.

The readers of the leading European trade journal for electrical engineering “Markt & Technik” honored this visible development and voted Meike Schmidt “Manager of the Year 2019” in the category “Electromechanics” for the third time in a row after 2017 and 2018. The award was presented on Thursday night at a gala in Vaterstetten near Munich.

Meike Schmidt points out: “I am delighted that this award focuses on the success and the innovations, which represent an alliance with the future, of the Lumberg Group – after all, it is an award for the day-to-day performance of our 1,250 employees from Mexico to Shanghai, and all the way especially for our colleagues in the factories in Schalksmühle, Cloppenburg and Świebodzin in Poland, are the very ones who make up the success of the Lumberg Group. Without them, there would be no award! It’s not my personal award – it’s their award!”
