Twice The Honour

The Jebsen & Jessen Family Enterprise, which comprises Jebsen & Co., Jebsen & Jessen (South East Asia), Jebsen & Jessen (Hamburg) and GMA Garnet, ended the year 2016 on a high note with two highly coveted awards for business excellence.

In November 2016, the Jebsen & Jessen Family Enterprise joined the ranks of world-class companies like LEGO, S.C. Johnson and Hermès as recipient of the 21st IMD-Lombard Odier Global Family Business Award. The award recognises firms that are exemplary in uniting family interests with those of the business and in combining tradition and innovation while demonstrating a clear commitment to their local community.

“Jebsen & Jessen Family Enterprise is a flagbearer for family business excellence and has successfully blended an enduring entrepreneurial spirit with the strong commitment to sustainability, environment and its many partnerships. The company goes beyond merit in receiving this year’s prize,” said IMD President Dominique Turpin.

Just a month earlier, sister group Jebsen & Jessen (South East Asia) was also conferred the Singapore 2016 EY-Barclays Family Business Award of Excellence at the EY Entrepreneur of The Year Awards.
