Dylan Werner - CEO

Dylan Werner, Founder and CEO of Werner Protective LLC, has a passion for keeping people safe—a passion ignited during his 8 years in the supply chain industry as a freight broker. During this time, Dylan made countless visits to manufacturing sites, engaging with supervisors and asking a simple yet profound question: 'What are your biggest areas of concern?' Without fail, the resounding answer was always the safety of their employees.

This insight resonated deeply with Dylan, sparking a determination to expand his services and make a tangible difference. With unwavering dedication, he forged partnerships with top-rated safety apparel companies and pioneered his own distribution company. In 2019, Werner Protective was born out of this commitment to ensuring workplace safety.

But beyond the boardroom, Dylan embodies a belief that safety isn’t just a business—it's a personal mission. He’s driven by the stories of individuals on the frontlines, fueling his unwavering dedication to providing top-notch safety solutions that safeguard not just businesses, but the livelihoods of the hardworking individuals behind them.

Outside the realm of protective gear and distribution, Dylan is an amateur boxing coach, husband, and father to two young children
