Chris Moran, MD and Founder
"This year, JCM is 10 years old. I'm slightly bemused by that, as I am by the way the last 10 years have flown by. When we started, it was just me, then Elle joined and we shared the kitchen table. Now, we have established offices, a team of 12 people, excellent clients, and a super new website. The latter represents a major investment for us and not just in financial terms. I wanted to create a company that truly focused on its people, in the belief that profits would then follow. I have not been proved wrong. We have a very flat structure, with everyone aware of whats going on, able to make changes without an extended discussion, and clear objectives and responsibilities. The web site project was a great example of this. It was clear that a new site and new brand were needed. So we agreed on the budget and let the best people work on it. (Those who know me know that didn't include me!). The only stipulation I made was that it should reflect who we are and what we believe in. The result is something that we are incredibly proud of. The last 10 years have been a blast. We proved that building a sustainable business that puts people first can be a successful endeavor. I excited to be able to explore more of the successes and challenges we've faced along the way and share with you some of the lessons we've learned."
