Georg H. Jeitler made his first professional experiences in the mid-1990s by organizing music events and as a part-time local journalist. In the late 1990s he was active as a seminar trainer and as a graphic designer which led him to founding an advertising agency in the year 2000 which still exists to date. In the years following he and his later wife Carmen expanded the company to one of the state’s leading communications firms in the mid-2000s with covering various creative fields. By the end of the 2000s the company was moving its focus more towards public relations as well as strategic management consulting.
From 2008 on – based on a prior consulting assignment – Jeitler aditionally started activities in the business of sustainable and organic construction and made first experiences with the austrian startup community which just had started to develop. He realized a business reorganisation project in the field of organic, clay-based construction materials and initiated the founding of a company for sustainable prefabricated houses where he is still shareholder today. Under the brand name Biofaserlehm he was running a plaster production company and started a perennial project with the multinational corporation Xella for developing a sustainable drywall construction system, which ended in 2012.

With the Austrian Media Certificate (Österreichisches Media-Siegel) he established a standardized audit product for valuation and impairment tests in the field of media rates and sponsoring fees.
From 2012/2013 on, Jeitler graually withdrew from responsibilities in the communications and consulting agency while his work as expert witness became focused on forensic work for the Austrian judiciary and prosecutor’s offices around cases of white collar crime and corruption, especially connected to fake services and fictious bills in the field of consultancy deliverables.
