FGS Global appoints Frank Jansen as new Partner in Amsterdam to strengthen its Strategy and Transaction Business


Amsterdam, 01.12.2023 - Former CFF Communications Strategy Director to strengthen FGS Global’s Dutch and European advisory offering

FGS Global, a global leading strategic communications consultancy, welcomes Frank Jansen as a new Partner in Amsterdam. As of 1 December 2023, Frank joins Tim van der Zanden, who opened the Amsterdam office in October 2022, and Anneke Hoijtink, who joined the firm in November this year. Together, they will form the leadership team in the Netherlands.

Frank brings along 25 years of consulting experience in navigating complex situations and reputational challenges both as an advisor and as interim manager for companies such as Heineken, Endemol and GrandVision. He is a trusted C-suite advisor on a wide range of stakeholder management issues with a sweet spot in strategic transitions, M&A and capital markets, including well over twenty IPOs.

Phoebe Kebbel, Partner and member of the firm’s Global Partnership Board, said: “We are proud to have Frank joining our company for the next chapter in his career. His arrival underlines our commitment helping our clients to navigate the stakeholder economy, as well as our successful start in the Netherlands, which has shown rapid growth since the opening in October 2022. We are thrilled to have him on board, and we are looking forward to collaborating with the Dutch leadership team”.

Frank Jansen commented: “I am excited to join FGS Global and to become part of the energetic team in Amsterdam. In today’s world, companies and boards more than ever, require specific, tailored advice to navigate the complexities of the stakeholder economy. I look forward to contributing to this and supporting the growth of FGS Global in the Netherlands and beyond.”

In October 2022, FGS Global brought a new offering to the Netherlands; tailored to support multinationals and growth companies in the Netherlands as well as foreign companies with mission-critical issues in the Dutch market. Since the official opening of the Amsterdam office, the team has grown to nine consultants, who have been advising various clients on how to navigate the stakeholder economy, including a wide range of issue management and crisis mandates, stakeholder outreach programs and high-profile cross-border M&A transactions.
