About FCG

Why do we exist?

We exist in order to turn knowledge into achievement.

Knowledge only becomes valuable when it is turned into results.

However, finding the right know-how or competencies that can turn ideas into results can be complex and time-consuming. 

We offer you the right match between a problem or a possibility and a team of hand-picked FCG specialists. Coming from many different specialist companies we can offer a deeper, broader, and more coordinated range of competencies. From strategic thinking to hardcore execution power.

What do we do – and with whom?

We orchestrate knowledge, creativity, and technology.

We are a group of ambitious companies with a massive talent pool within our respective fields:

  • Strategic counselling
  • Marketing & advertising
  • PR & communication
  • User experience & digital development
  • Executive search, search & selection, and board search
  • Management consulting

We each have our own culture and clients, but together we are a family. We are stronger and better when we are together – and we are faster, better, and more relevant when we work across traditional boundaries.

Selecting the right members from FCG companies depends on your needs.

How can we help you?

Find the competencies you actually need
We can always provide you with the right fit of competencies, since we have a multitude of people and teams. That’s your guarantee of finding the expertise you actually need. We are not selling you a violin player – if you need a drummer or perhaps a complete percussion section.

Benefit from one point of contact and co-ordination in services
We offer a structured, disciplined and coordinated effort to solve your organization’s challenges and fulfil your brand’s true potential. You can choose to work with a single trusted advisor within First Chair Group or make a one-stop-shopping arrangement according to your needs. That will save you time and resources in bringing your organization successfully forward.

Stay close – we have full national presence
We are always close to you with offices in Aalborg, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Hellerup, Hvidovre and Fredericia.

Be on the forefront of knowledge with our think tank
Our think tank consists of prominent thinkers and practitioners within relevant sectors and trades. Combine the members of our think tank with the right FCG advisor, and you’ll be on a fast-track to a successful future.

 

What do we value?

People
We are driven by people and work for people. We acknowledge that diversity is essential to make the world tick, and that passion powers profits – not the other way around.

Knowledge
We deliver first-class knowledge-driven solutions. Professional and transparent advice is always the foundation of our long-term relationships and business goals – not just quick wins.

Idealism
We strive to make the world a better place. That means transparency, decency and fairness in people to people relations as well as in commercial dealings.
