Jacobi assigns at GC

Stav Jacobi is occurred as the Board of Directors of GC in the last, when he's just sitting in the back seat of a car. But passive roles, reluctance to went to a as him, the love of influence and dictated the pace, only in this case, not more. Not because the GC would have slowed him down, but because he had to admit to himself: "I was totally overloaded. I could not deal in depth with the topics. So I decided to draw the consequences." This means that He has stepped down from the Board. Zurich have adopted it already.

Jacobi's passion is Volleyball, Volero Zürich is his child. The top team has now been renamed to Volero Le Cannet and is moved to the Côte d'azur. As an entrepreneur, he has brought it to a fortune, and ideas he had for the GC. But, there's the Problem: the time.

The helper on the open sea

In may 2015, had made the GC him a seat in the Board of Directors tasty. His intention was not to be with money helpful, but with his experiences. But he did it because he was on an oceangoing ship on the open sea drive, and the threatened demise. "As the sand-no more bags were enough to fill the holes, I couldn't not say Sorry, is not my Problem," says the 51-Year-old, "because I had to help."

He shot money. Whether its spending to move in the seven-digit range, he does not want to say. He shortens the topic dear: "It was more than it should be – to the detriment of Volero. I helped GC just to keep above water."

there will be no more now. Jacobi is gone, he is gone "with a good feeling": "I have worked in a very good body, which has also been Fun." He also finds that the condition of the Clubs is quite as disastrous as he had often read. Nevertheless, he recognizes the urgent need for action and recommends to clarify the relationships among the three owners. The owner, the President Stephan Anliker and Peter Stüber, Heinz sprout, they share 90 percent of the shares. "But it is not obvious that they understand each other," says Jacobi, "you need to find a solution." His figurative statement: "If a Cup breaks, you can glue them together. But in the rarest of cases, you can drink this tea."

Jacobi's idea is that an Investor reports. Or rather: a patron of the arts, "because soccer is in Switzerland, a loss of business and remain". Only: Who's willing to put his money in the Knowledge that it disappears and he sees no francs it again? "GC must have an emotional value, which is the most important prerequisite," says Jacobi, and also draws a metaphorical comparison: "A money lender must have the feeling to swim in clear water, not in a broth."

slam the door

With all the romanticism of his thought Jacobi did not believe that the GC brand have no charisma and more to serious buyers attract: "There are in Zurich, people that inspire you. The person responsible must not only tend to the door to quickly slam, but should consider every Option." The Budget of GC amounts every year to more than 20 million Swiss francs. For Jacobi, this is not a number, he shakes his head, he even says: "Zurich is a difficult and expensive location for top sport. 20 million Swiss francs would be a lot for Thun, Vaduz and Schaffhausen, but they are not for a city like Zurich."

Jacobi with would all, in order to meet the outlined profile of a powerful man in GC. But he is dismissive. His vocation, he sees with the Association ACPV for the rights of the top volleyball Clubs to stand up and to bring the world Federation FIVB, as well as the European Association of CEV to accept the club as an important Partner. Therefore, only the remains at the end: "I wish GC the best of luck." (
