Colleen Ellis, President of J.M. Neil & Associates, a personnel consulting and staffing solutions company, was presented the 2016 Missouri Governor’s Woman-Owned Business of the Year Award on September 8, 2016, at the 2016 Missouri Governor’s Conference on Economic Development Awards Luncheon, at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center, according to Pam Fields, Ellis’ Human Resource Administrator.

The Missouri Governor’s Woman-Owned Small Business Award is presented annually to a business owner who has demonstrated outstanding success through the contributions her enterprise has made to Missouri communities and the economy. The award selection is based on the following criteria: the business must be 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman who is a Missouri resident and have 100 or fewer employees, be in business a minimum 3 years in Missouri, be a viable for-profit company and successful in business, maintain a responsible and rewarding workplace environment, and give back to the community through volunteerism, contributions or in-kind services.

Founded in 1986 by Ellis’ mother, JoAnne Mina, Ellis began working alongside Mina at JMN in 1994, and purchased ownership in 2007 after the passing of her mother. Under Ellis’ leadership, and the building of a strong management team, several significant milestones were charted for JMN in the last decade These includes its evolution into a world class agency offering commercial staffing, government staffing, project planning and both contract and permanent hire options. JMN decided to pursue technology business segments in the Midwest, acquiring seven new clients and placing more than 250 people in contract positions.

JMN has successfully partnered with federal and commercial clients in the U.S. and internationally to provide contingent and temporary solutions, professional search, workforce management services, and outsourced project solutions for over 30 years. Clients include global corporations, technological companies, financial institutions, engineering firms, manufacturing and the wireless industries.

In addition to personnel consulting and executive search services, the agency has added staffing options into the areas of aeronautics, avionics, telecommunications, transportation, electrical engineering, and information technology. “We are aggressively expanding our market focus and evaluating the latest trends and technologies,” adds Ellis. “Our goal is to achieve double digit growth in revenue and profits in 2017, while continuing to expand the portfolio of services we offer.”
