In an interview with BikeBiz distributor Jim Walker and has put its recent successes down to passion for the trade and a willingness to take new approaches to the business.

Jim Walker CEO Ian Wilson said: "I am sure our firm’s performance has been down to the fact that we have tried to find new and innovative ways to approach doing business, being more professional and very focussed and commercial on what we do."

Wilson added: "We are just about to launch a really exciting new project, which is going to be incredibly beneficial to all dealers. It will be completely new and innovative, and again, it is very much relationship driven and rewards dealers for their commitment and business.”

The Jim Walker boss also hinted that the firm is looking to grow still further and said that an acquisition was not something the company had ruled out:

“It may be that we will add more products to the portfolio, but only if they fit well with us. Maybe we will look at growing, through acquiring another business that fits well with ours. Growth has to be for the right reasons and not just for the sake of it.”
