We are a family business. Nadine and Yvonne Sprügel joined the company back in 2006 and 2007. In the meantime, the daughters of founder Rudi Sprügel lead the board of directors. JAKO will remain a family business in the future - and that shapes our culture. Because at the end of the day, people are always at the centre of everything we do.


Football has shaped Rudi Sprügel, a team player. After many years as a player at a high amateur level, he realised that suitable team sports equipment for an amateur club is not so easy to come by.


Actually, Nadine and Yvonne Sprügel have been with the company from the very beginning. When they were young, the regular photo shoots for the catalogue were one of the main tasks of the two Sprügel daughters. In the meantime, of course, the tasks have become different.


To this day, the name Sprügel is omnipresent at JAKO. The name appears more than twenty times among our employees. This is not the only reason why the family atmosphere characterises our culture. The team spirit of our founder can still be felt today. Some say it's a bit like a team on the football pitch.


When it comes to the topic of family, we think of our employees. For example, on our family days, which we organise at the JAKO Teamcenter. But also in terms of family-friendly structures with suitable working models for parents, a children's Christmas party and secure jobs.


The match plan is set. As of 1 January 2021, Nadine (Chairwoman of the Board) and Yvonne (Deputy Chairwoman) have moved up to the Board. The generational change is also a commitment to the future: JAKO remains a family business.
