Joanne Jupe

General Manager
Harvey Norman Bedding New Zealand

Degree in Economics - Macquarie University

"The Harvey Norman Franchise business model appealed to me - the freedom to run my own business, the ability to be in control of the outcomes of the store, the interaction with customers, suppliers and sales teams, and the unlimited earning potential of a model based on profit share.

The opportunities while working for Harvey Norman have been amazing, the people that I have met and the knowledge and skills that they have shared with me have helped to further my career.  I have also had the opportunity to live and work across Australia and New Zealand, and have traveled overseas to places like the USA, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and China. The culture and the people have shaped my views on the world and our place in a global society."
