“Soren Sepstrup Lonkvist is a person with great added value for ANDRITZ in general, as well as for all the team members involved in our collaboration.
Thanks to his broad knowledge of the different organizations in our company, centralized for certain aspects, and perfectly delocalized for others, Soren quickly helped us to put in place a long-term strategy (5 years vision) with the top Management of ANDRITZ Pumps, while at the same time, working details with the people involved in the project.
Soren has constantly put the clients/partners and their expectations at the center of our concerns, so that they remain the main focus of our strategy.
Soren has this extraordinary ability to adapt to different people from our organization, regardless of the cultures and languages of each. It is able to convey an accurate message in a relevant and always very motivating way.
It is with unparalleled pleasure and efficiency that we work with Soren and his team, especially when analyzing potential candidates for key positions in our global organization.
I personally recommend to any Manager to have the opportunity to develop, jointly with Soren, the definition of its strategy (human and industrial), including the strict and continuous implementation of it. According my experience, this jointly developed strategy can only be successful in short and long term.”
Christian Dubois, Senior Vice President, ANDRITZ AG
“Soren worked for me as a consultant to develop the leadership excellence of my Management Team when I took over Andritz Metals which was at that time in a phase which required a very tough and serious restructuring process due to lack of new orders and a huge loss.
I appreciate their dedicated and straightforward way of guiding us as a Management Team to improve our leadership excellence considering the 4E leadership principles (energy, energize, edge, execute). We developed a systematic way all way down from vision, strategy, MWB (must win battles) and concrete action items always focusing on the main things in order to be successful in such a change process.
Soren has a clear and systematic way of working. They have based on their broad experience a very good understanding of people’s behavior/competences and is fast in his deliveries.
Thanks for your Support! Heinz”
