Dr. Jay Jakub is the Chief of Staff for the Economics of Mutuality (EoM) organization (www.eom.org) headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, though he is based near Washington, DC and serves concurrently as Director of the EoM Foundation.
Jay advises the Thompson Family Office in Richmond, Virginia and is an advisor to Singapore’s Alliance for Action on Corporate Purpose. He is an international speaker, author, and former Senior Director for External Research at Mars, Inc., maker of iconic brands like M&Ms, Snickers, Mars Bar, Wrigley’s gum, Pedigree pet food and more.

EoM now consists of the not-for-profit EoM Foundation, which delivers the EoM approach through global educational partnerships, research, and advocacy; EoM Solutions, owned by the Foundation, but a for-profit consultancy delivering EoM pragmatically to corporate clients; the newly launched Jubilee Economics Foundation (JEF), which delivers EoM at the local community uplifting and individual vocational levels; and EoM Investments (owned by JEF) that is transforming the way investment capital is deployed to use measurable impact to drive superior value creation and performance.
