Gerber Recognized For Successful Turnaround
Gerber was selected by TMA in honor of its strategic revival from near bankruptcy in 2002, prior to the acquisition of its assets by Globe Union, to profitable growth in the current global recession. According to the company, Gerber’s corporate restructuring was led by CEO and President Michael Werner, who in 2003 took over the family-run, 70-plus-year-old company and modernized it while maintaining its loyalty to the professional trade.
In October 2009, TMA publicly recognized Gerber’s corporate re-structuring and turnaround success with increased profits in spite of the economic downturn. Werner accepted the “Turnaround of the Year” award during the Oct. 8 keynote luncheon at the TMA Annual Convention in Phoenix, Ariz.
