Our culture is shaped by our values and describes what we care about. It is what we believe, how we work, and how we achieve. To this purpose, FEG maintains a culture focused on respect and excellence.


We create trust by treating everyone with respect through open communication and dignity.


We aim for excellence in everything we do by tapping into each team member’s entrepreneurial spirit and pride of ownership.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are core elements of FEG’s culture of respect and excellence.

We actively contribute our time, talent, and resources in support of many important causes:
