JMX Brands CEO Jim Miller said despite temporarily working remotely, the staff “remained engaged, learning and growing.”
The company hired a record breaking 11 full-time employees in the third quarter of 2021, bringing the total number of full-time employees to 74.
“While I am grateful that we offer meaningful employment to a growing number of people, I am even more gratified by the professional growth that I see in so many of the JMX Brands staff,” said Miller. “JMX Brands remains a Best Place to Work because of our employees.”
The Best Places to Work competition is a survey dedicated to identifying the best employers in the Sarasota-Manatee area, while also providing businesses with insightful feedback from employees.
