PERTH: Financial services company, ThinkSmart, has announced it will expand into the Clive Anthony’s chain this month, extending its current reach with the JB Hi-Fi group to 57 stores, with a further 21 stores to come online early in the 2008 financial year.

With ThinkSmart already working within JB Hi-Fi branded stores, the introduction into the Clive Anthony’s chain will coincide with JB Hi-Fi’s competed introduction of the computer category across its branded stores.

“We’ve experienced a strong first five months of trading with JB Hi-Fi,” said ThinkSmart Limited managing director and CEO, Ned Montarello.

“The acceleration of our staffing program and expansion into the Clive Anthony’s channel sets the right platform for continued growth.”

ThinkSmart Limited has also accelerated its planned regional management program to have a full complement of its dedicated JB Hi-Fi regional sales managers in place ahead of the completion of the roll-out of computers across all stores.
