Pam Wainman

Director,

Jadan Press

Pam Wainman started her career in a Freight Forwarding Office working for a Dutch owned Company as a Receptionist. Very eager to learn new skills in other departments Transport & Imports/Exports, moved quickly through the ranks, working for the company for several years in their Northampton office when the company re-located. Then later took up a position back in Hull for a Shipping Agent looking after the Hapag-Lloyd Indonesian Agency.

My early key to success was working with older experienced colleagues always keen to help, listen and learn. Along with this and working within a Dutch and German organisation gave me a totally different aspect & working ethic, which I feel developed my business knowledge and attitude to being a hard worker always giving 100% to the job no matter how big or small, and being very much appreciated and acknowledged by all my colleagues from the Top to the bottom.

After leaving Shipping & Forwarding to have a family I later took up a position as a PA to a family owned local Turf Accountant in an administration role and further expanded my knowledge working on accounts and payroll - another different direction but a very enjoyable and varied role.

Whilst in this position the opportunity arose to go and work for a family friend to run his Print Company (Jadan Press) as he was emigrating to Australia with his family. Two years after running the Company I bought Jadan Press Limited from the previous owner.

Having done a five year part time business degree in 1998, undertaken to fulfil a dream I never attempted when leaving school due to lack of confidence. Gaining my degree in 2003 to owning a business that I originally had no experience or knowledge in would have been something I could only think about in my wildest dreams.

I’ve met many interesting people along (still on) my journey and have a vast knowledge of Business and within different industries, loving a challenge & from an early age been told by my Mum there is no such word as Can’t…

The great Walt Disney once said ‘All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them’
