1909: Mund & Fester- All in the Family
In 1909 Jules Fester brings his nephews Hermann Firgau and Georges Fester into the company as partners. This enlargement of the firm makes it necessary for Mund & Fester to look for its own larger premises, and Jules Fester finds them in Hermannstrasse 16.
Meanwhile, the company has gone into the reinsurance business, and this is handled inside the firm by Mr. Meyer and Mr. Carlier. The business, with primarily foreign corporations, begins to blossom, due in large part to the highly competent and dedicated colleagues in the team, such as the brilliant, multilingual Carlier, who speaks fluent English, French, and Spanish. As of 1913, Mund & Fester represent five German and 13 foreign corporations.
