Our story so far
It’s impossible to capture all the amazing people and extraordinary events that have brought JMJ to where it is today. There have been many changes over the years, but what remains unchanged is our lasting commitment to making a difference. Here are just a few of our highlights:
Our story began on a houseboat in Sausalito Bay (just north of San Francisco), when Joseph Friedman, Mike Goddu and Jay Greenspan had the wild idea they could build a consulting business together. With $10,000 in seed money from Jay’s Mom and some visionary ideas, JMJ was born. The fledgling company joined a nationwide franchise network for consulting firms (Transformational Technologies) and was named “Rookie of the Year.”
A decade of high performance
Having moved its corporate headquarters from California to Texas, JMJ’s High-Performance Projects™ practice thrived. We supported major projects including the rebuilding of Kuwait, the clean-up of the Hanford nuclear waste site in Washington, and the Channel and Sydney Harbor Tunnel construction projects.
A global stand for safety
As we entered the new millennium, JMJ’s landmark Incident and Injury-Free™ (IIF™) practice took off, leading the way in creating safety performance for major energy, mining, and construction companies operating around the world. Over the next decade, we worked on iconic projects, including the construction of Heathrow Terminal 5 (Europe’s largest construction project at the time) and the Shell Pearl GTL plant (setting a safety record for Shell).
JMJ growth attracts investors
After years of double-digit growth, JMJ caught the attention of London-based private investor group, 3i. They acquired a majority share, pledging to support the company in its commitment to transforming leadership and safety cultures around the world.
A bold vision for the future
Helping organizations transform their culture remains our priority. In early 2022, we entered the digital world with the launch of the JMJ Transformation Cloud. With a renewed focus on delivering transformation in safety, sustainability, and performance, JMJ, in partnership with organizations across the globe, continues to create impact and value for its clients and the hundreds of thousands of people who work with them. Our vision? To be the world’s leading cultural transformation firm, creating breakthrough results in safety, sustainability, and performance.
