UK move another bridge for Jacqui Jordan to cross

WA Business News 40under40 winner Jacqui Jordan is selling her events business.

Ms Jordan set up Jacqui Jordan Events four years ago and was poised to make significant inroads into the events market, capitalising on her years of hard work.

Ms Jordan said the decision had not been an easy one to make, but she had committed to selling-up to move to England with her partner.

“I put a lot of thought into the decision,” Ms Jordan said.

“I’m very sad but I’m excited about the move. The business is at a stage where it’s going to grow.”

Her partner, after setting up an international business, is required to be in Europe for a further 12 months.

“He has been away for five months and he came back for a month and we decided that I would go over. The company that he works for is going exceptionally well and they have offered me a position,” she said.

That leaves Ms Jordan with a robust business and a wealth of stock, intellectual property, and new market research and marketing material.

“I’ve got brand new marketing collateral, a new website ready to go and brand new brochure. It has been about six months worth of work,” Ms Jordan said.

Jacqui Jordan Events is com-prised of two business units – the event decor and design arm – and event co-ordination. And the whole lot is for sale, she said.

Wanting to get to the UK as soon as possible, Ms Jordan is keen to attract interest from creative and skilled operators.

She said the sale could include the lease of the business’s premises in Mosman Park.

“It’s a great area to be in. A lot of the corporate managers live here and there is a good private party market,” Ms Jordan said.

She said the database and event co-ordination systems would form part of the sale package.

Jacqui Jordan Events is the only organisation in WA to have accreditation with International Special Events Society.

Other 40under40 movements include Andrew Thorburn’s departure from the Commonwealth Bank Australia. He has accepted a position as one of two regional NSW managers for St George Bank.

Justin Willis has survived the Andersen merge and has taken a position at Ernst and Young.
