General Manager. Sydney Fish Market.

Pete Jeans of SMO Sydney was engaged by Sydney Fish Market to undertake a detailed analysis of our share of seafood production to identify strategic opportunities for SFM. What others say.

Wesfarmers Industrial Specialists 

I retained Pete Jeans from SMO Sydney to run two strategic projects at Bullivants and Motion Industries. Motion Industries benefitted from a clear picture of inventory risks; and successful implementation of sales programmes to drive stock clearances through existing channels. 

Bullivants benefitted from a strategic review of lifting equipment opportunities around their market offer; as well as marketing planning initiatives to exploit growth opportunities throughout Australia. 

SMO Sydney provided a better value solution because of their  relevant industry experience and best-practice processes.
