New release from Jim Penman

I am pleased to announce that Neil Welsh and James Jacka have officially become partners of Jim’s Group.

I’m sure you will join with me in offering your congratulations and full support.

The partnership involves Jim’s Group taking back ownership of the Jim’s Test & Tag Division.

“My decision to take on partners has been based purely on Neil and James’ outstanding contributions the Group over the past eight years,” Jim Penman said.

“They have built Test & Tag into an exceptional Division, combining constant growth with low attrition and excellent standards of customer service.

“Over the past two years Neil has brought much-needed change to Jim’s Group through his role as Chief Operating Officer, including improved levels of support for Franchisors, as well as the introduction of the new marketing department, a first for Jim’s Group.

“Neil and James share my commitment to Jim’s Group’s values and will provide a continuity of policy at the top, as well as superior management talents.

“Our aim is to provide an environment where every Franchisee and every Franchisor achieves their financial and personal goals, and we want to work with them to achieve that,” Jim Penman said.

Neil Welsh said the partnership was both “humbling and very exciting”.

“James and I have walked the same path of our Franchisees and Franchisors during our 10-year journey with Jim’s Test & Tag. We also understand the challenges of being a Divisional,” Neil said.

“Like Jim, who spent five years pushing a lawnmower before getting into franchising, we know what it’s like at the coal face.

“Our commitment to our Franchisees, Franchisors and Divisionals is to influence and add value to the new direction of the Jim’s Group, together with Jim Penman.

“With the great team at the Jim’s Group Corporate Support Centre, we look forward to driving the Jim’s Group to the next stage of its franchising journey.

“Our goal is to ensure that all of our customers and potential customers in Australia and around the world are well aware that if you ‘Need it Done, Jim’s the One’,” Neil said.

Jim Penman is the founder of the Jim’s Group of Companies.
