Building the perfect bike is an impossible goal, but it's the only one that's worthwhile. In fact , Jamis has been at it for a long time. CEO and President Carine Joannou has been successfully leading and directing G. Joannou Cycle, the Jamis parent company, since taking over from her father in 1981.
What began as a modest regional distributor of imported European bicycles and parts in 1937 has grown into a national powerhouse with international distributors throughout the world. GJC is now one of the oldest, largest bicycle companies under original ownership in America.
Greg Webber, Vice President of Product Development has been with Jamis since the first Earth Cruiser rolled out in 1979 and eagerly joined Carine's winning team when GJC acquired Jamis in 1990. Their commitment, passion and leadership inspires all the bike experts at Jamis not to settle for "just good enough". The whole team aims for nothing short of perfection in their bicycles every day.
