Randy Lammers

Vice President of Finance
Würth Industry North America
Chicago, IL

How long have you worked for Würth?

1 Year

What do you like most about your job?

All the great people I am meeting and the abundance of opportunities to grow our business and serve brilliantly our customers.

What’s a common question you get from customers?

Not surprisingly, being in Finance, our customers often ask me about pricing, cost savings opportunities we can bring to them, and generally how we can partner to improve P&L results for both companies.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Time with family (wife and 2 daughters), reading, snowmobiling & four wheeling, fishing and boating.

What are your favorite sports teams?

Michigan Wolverines for College Sports, Chicago Cubs Baseball, and Chicago Bears Football.

What is a typical day like for you?

I have been traveling extensively trying to visit as many of our OpCo’s as possible to understand up close our operations and how we service our customers. I also spend a good amount of time reviewing financial results and partnering with my German Finance colleagues. But, what I really enjoy is when I have an opportunity to work with Sales and Ops on their bids to go win new business.

What's a fun fact about you?

I have the same birthday as Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter character) which is December 31st.
