“FGK started out with 4 employees in 2002. We are proud to say that FGK has grown to a CRO with more than 100 employees now, being able to manage all kinds of trials not only in Europe, but worldwide. At the same time, many of our employees have been with us for a long part of this journey. That is what we value most in our team: The expert knowledge base, familiarity and trust that arises through a long term partnership and which we pass on to our clients as well“, says Edgar Fenzl, Managing Director.

Over the years FGK has successfully expanded to Prague, London, Budapest and Warsaw. In addition, the affiliates “FGK Representative Service” and “FGK Pharmacovigilance” were founded in order to provide some special services to FGK’s customers. Many clients are Biotech and Medical Device companies who value the personal contact and individual solutions FGK can provide based upon its size and owner structure.

Managing Director Martin Krauss says: “A high degree of FGK’s success is owned to our clients, our cooperating partners and our excellent team of staff members; therefore we would like to thank those who have chosen to collaborate with us. The field of Clinical Research is changing fast and thus we are very grateful for having been part of the development of new therapies for such a long time now. Responding to the individual challenges each project entails and satisfying previously unmet needs motivates us every day. We look forward to continuing FGK’s success story in the future!”
