German business executive who attended Bilderberg/1991.

Werner H. Dieter was Chairman of the Board of Management of Mannesmann AG, a German industrial conglomerate.[1][2]


Between 1952 and 1960 he was Development Engineer Robert Bosch GmbH. From 1960-1985 he was Engineering Manager and Sales Manager at G.L. Rexroth GmbH, from 1973 Managing Director and Chairman of the Board of Management.[3]

Between 1985 and 1994 he was Chairman of the Board of Mannesmann AG.[3]

He was member of the Supervisory Board of different large German and foreign companies.[3]


In 1994, Dusseldorf public prosecutors began an investigation into assertions that Dieter had routed orders from Mannesmann's Rexroth subsidiary to Hydac, a company in which Dieter's family owns a majority stake. The accusations were raised by Der Spiegel magazine, which said Dieter forced Rexroth to pay Hydac prices that were above prevailing market rates for the equipment ordered.[4]

In 1996, Former Mannesmann AG chief executive Werner Dieter agreed to pay the equivalent of $674,000 demanded by Dusseldorf prosecutors as the price of their ending their investigation of him. The money was not an admission of guilt, but only paid to end the case[5].
