Biography


 

Since joining the family business back in 1977, Jack has proudly presided over the expansion of the company started 60 years ago by his mother. 

From his very earliest days in recruitment, Jack has pioneered joint ventures as a successful way of driving growth while leaving entrepreneurial managers with a stake in the operation. His very first Joint Venture, Refrigeration Recruitment, was set up shortly after joining the business and capitalised on Jack’s own expertise in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

He went on to create more than 50 JV's over the years, including the most recent ones - Airport Placements, Driving and other regional recruitment operations.

Today his role is like a ship's pilot - keeping the good ship HR GO on course and avoiding all hazards. 

The rest of of the team are responsible for steering the group successfully towards our business goals, but Jack is still motivated by the excitement of creating a new idea and pursuing a deal.

Jack continues to bring innovation and strategic thinking to recruitment.
