Life Beyond FGS Global
Also in private life: marathon runner.
As a partner in the Frankfurt office of FGS Global, Georg Jakobs has been advising clients from various sectors for more than 15 years on their strategic positioning in the competition of ideas for acceptance and support of key stakeholders. For him, the reputation of a company and its management team is of paramount importance. As a consultant, he aims to work together with his clients - preferably within the framework of a long-term, trustful relationship - to master the challenges that arise from the increasing complexity and growing volatility of the environment and the changing needs and attitudes of stakeholders. This can be about the persuasiveness of a corporate strategy, the disruptive power of a brilliant idea, the boldness of an M&A transaction, the charisma of a CEO beyond the boundaries of his own company as well as the attraction of a new solution to a social problem.
With FGS Global, Georg works for large corporations and strong medium-sized companies from various industries, currently with a focus on the automotive, energy and finance sectors. Before joining FGS Global, the graduate economist had already intensively accompanied the financial industry during the first, altogether 14-year phase of his professional life: as a journalist for the leading German financial and business publications Handelsblatt and manager magazin.
