Our history

Jøp, Ove & Myrthu Vest P/S is a continuation of the values and experience of the original Jøp, Ove & Myrthu, which was founded in 1989, when Jørgen Pedersen, Erik Ove and Jess Myrthu joined forces to create a new, strong player within strategic communications consultancy.

From the beginning, Jøp, Ove & Myrthu demonstrated that they were competent consultants who told companies the truth and acted as reliable and constructive sparring partners. The list of assignments soon grew, and in time, Jøp, Ove & Myrthu chose to collaborate with a range of associated consultants.

A lot has happened since the first office opened on Kvæsthusgade in Nyhavn. Today, the original partners are no longer active communications advisors. Jess Myrthu is however still Chairman of the Jøp, Ove & Myrthu Vest P/S board. New partners have continually taken over and day by day, they are building on the competences and values the bureau was founded on: Professionalism, confidentiality and honest communication.

In 2013, a new structure was introduced within the company. The new structure ensured a more contemporary form of ownership with two separate partner companies, which divided the ownership of Jøp, Ove & Myrthu between Copenhagen and Aarhus.

The foundations are therefore in place for the continuation of one of Denmark’s strongest brands within communications consultancy. At the same time, continuity, competence and values have been maintained.
