On Working at FSG

"The complexity and the magnitude of the social challenges we face today requires collective solutions, involving all key stakeholders. That is what has driven my work all the way back to my Davos years to now at FSG. Specifically, the private sector must play a central role in tackling societal issues and that is why the work we do around shared value, especially in the global context, is so exciting."
