Their mission

Our mission

JB you've done it again!

The business was established in 1974 by Mr. John Barbuto (JB), trading from a single store in East Keilor, Victoria. He had one simple philosophy: to deliver a specialist range of Hi-Fi and recorded music at Australia's lowest prices. The business was sold in 1983 and by 1999 another nine stores were opened. In July 2000 JB Hi-Fi was purchased by private equity bankers and senior management with the aim of taking the successful model nationally. In October 2003, JB Hi-Fi was floated on the Australian Stock Exchange. Now, maintaining Barbuto's original philosophy, JB is one of Australasia's fastest growing and largest retailer of home entertainment. In July 2004, JB bought the Queensland Clive Anthony chain of stores which sell consumer electronics, white goods, cooking appliances and air-conditioning. JB stores offer the world's leading brands of Hi-Fi, Speakers, Televisions, DVD's, VCR's, Cameras, Car Sound, Home Theatre, Computers and Portable Audio and continues to stock an exclusive range of specialist Hi-Fi products. JB Hi-Fi also offers the largest range of video games, recorded music, DVD music and DVD movies with over 50,000 CDs and most major studio DVD releases, all at cheap prices! Customers are able to buy online from our huge range of CDs, DVDs, and games (see home page). JB Hi-Fi has it all - best brands, huge range, cheapest prices, convenient locations, but most importantly genuine personal service from our experienced specialist staff.

Our Story

The Hatch story started when good friends Adam Jacobs (Ex THE ICONIC Founder) and Chaz Heitner (Ex Zip Co-founder) came together to build something they were deeply passionate about.

Both founders believe that traditional hiring processes are broken and limit people from finding work that’s a good fit for them. Since founding the company, Adam and Chaz have built a team that shares their mission and are both confident they will continue to build an impactful global company for many years to come.
