The Comvort group was founded in 1989  by the marketing guru Karl Jacobi, Karl was born in Cologne, Germany.

Cologne is considered the city of Germany with the most latin mentality of all, where carnival is celebrated in style.

From a very young age he was in well known German boarding schools where he faced very competitive challenges that made him grow and formed his personality and character.
