Simon Lichtenberg and His Business

After being a part of the timber business the year before, Danish business owner Simon Lichtenberg established his own company in 1993. The things he has learned from making mistakes in running his business made it possible for him to become one of the best businessmen today. Profiting by up to $2.5m each year, due to winning a number of direct clients (such as IKEA) from around the world, Simon Lichtenberg’s business went international.

One challenge Simon Lichtenberg faced in 1997, was that he found himself caught up in a complicated legal case concerning the production of false 'BoConcept' products. He has become a success owing to him handling his business difficulties with tremendous determination and skill. After losing a legal battle over payment after the Zhenjing Leather Factory sold him inoperative products, Simon Lichtenberg was granted yet another chance to overcome adversity.
