Jim Penman the CEO of Jim’s Group, the largest franchise chain in Australia and the most renowned lawn-mowing business in the world. He has become a symbol of success in the Australian business sector, and despite his extraordinary achievements, is still driven to continue the growth of his enterprise.
Jim famously started Jim's mowing decades ago with only $24 to market himself to the world. Now Jim is a globally recognised entrepreneur with over 50 unique trade divisions under his name and over 4,350 individual franchises across four countries.
Jim is highly dedicated to his business, spending the majority of his waking hours being involved and running his business. He is directly accessible to all of his franchisees and to any client with a serious complaint. He believes the key to success in a business heavily relies on customer service.
Passion-driven, Jim has authored best-selling books to share his corporate experience from the bottom to the top. Jim is also active in a research program into the epigenetics of social behaviour, a continuation of his PhD work, which he believes could help in the treatment of mental illness and addictive disorders.
