About Jim McManus, Whangarei Regional Manager

Jim McManus was born in Northern Ireland. His family moved to Zambia in central Africa and later to New Zealand when Jim was 9 years old. Prior to joining Crest he worked for nearly 20 years in logistics. Jim joined CrestClean as a franchisee four years ago. CrestClean ticked all the boxes for Jim who was looking for a business that was largely recession proof and allowed flexibility for family time. “Crest was it and I haven’t looked back – next to marrying my wife, it was the best move I have ever made! “The region was developed by Neil and Rachel Kumar under the North Harbour banner and the success of their endeavours lead to the creation of the Whangarei Region as it became too big a territory for them to manage on their own.

“The Region covers the entire Northland Region and we have seven great Franchisee Teams currently based around Whangarei and Kerikeri. There are tremendous opportunities for growth and we have big plans for the region.” Before taking on the region from Neil, Jim was part of the North Harbour Regional Training Team. “The thing I enjoy most about working alongside franchisees is watching them grow within themselves and within their business.”
