Josh Jambon is a veteran entrepreneur who says that he truly loves the competition he gets in business, and more than that he loves to win. He has started several businesses since he completed his college education in 1983, including Super-Valu Marine Supply that provided support to offshore oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico. He also formed Jambon Boat Rentals, now known Jambon Marine Supply, LLC, and served as its President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Jambon is an oil and gas world wide vessels and personnel company,” he says. “We have offices on all continents and have the capabilities of providing any type of vessels for the oil and gas industry.”
Starting a new business is a huge undertaking and it requires tremendous passion for the work. Part of the drive is his love of competition and business, as well building a profitable company from the ground up, and being his own boss. But entrepreneurs like him need to be able to deal with many obstacles that inevitably come their way. Building a new business does not happen overnight, and it takes a great deal of perseverance to keep at it in spite of the setbacks.
As Josh Jambon knew even before launching Jambon Maritime Service, entrepreneurship is not a nine-to-five job. Building the company to the successful enterprise that it is today took round-the-clock dedication and attention, and a great deal of resourcefulness. These necessary characteristics helped him to expand his business into an international, full service oil and gas vessel company.
