He has advised more than 100 global and regional companies and dealt with issues surrounding brand architecture and brand systems, introduction of product brands, brand management in the B2B segment, or increasing revenue through the brand. Whether he works with global DAX-30 corporations, highly specialized hidden champions, or family operated SMEs - Jürgen Gietl knows the problems of these companies like nobody else. He and his team develop tailor-made brand strategies and help with implementing them in the organizations. His methods have convinced not only the management boards, but also the specialist departments, whose employees eagerly transport the results of his work into the companies as brand ambassadors.
