During her time as MD of the rail firm, Jones grew the business from £4 to £6 million. Her new venture, HFZ Consulting, will advise on business growth, quality systems implementation, financial control and manufacturing.
“HFZ stands for hassle free zone,” she explained. “Our approach is not the usual business school formula, but based on practical experience building teams and motivating them to achieve higher performance. The aim will be to produce real gains for clients in the shortest possible time frame.”
Targeting rail supply, engineering and other manufacturing businesses, HFZ says it can call on expertise from a network of experienced specialists. “Many business owners and managers are so close to their business and engaged day-to-day issues that they are blind to opportunities for improvement. Our aim is to give these clients quick wins, but also introduce longer term strategies for continued growth and improvement,” Jones added.
