Shaping change with pride in our traditions
Hanseatic trading house
Jebsen & Jessen Hamburg, a traditional Hanseatic trading house with its roots in Denmark, has continuously expanded into large sectors of the global trading markets. Transparency, trust and a strong entrepreneurial spirit have defined our business activities for more than a century. We are cosmopolitan, competent and innovative – and we love new things: the transformation of business models and the dynamism of global markets.
The management at Jebsen & Jessen Hamburg
Working in harmony for mutual success
Three very different and complementary personalities make up the management at the Jebsen & Jessen Hamburg Group: the Managing Partner, Fritz Graf von der Schulenburg, is responsible for the overall management. Michael Schwägerl and Axel Tilz, also Managing Partners, complete the top management who promote a cosmopolitan and team-oriented corporate culture and work together with all colleagues for the success of our traditional trading house.
