Jamie Vine
Group Chief Executive - The Happy Workplace Group

Where are you from?

Sheffield, England


I have 30 years commercial experience across the telecoms, capital equipment, real estate and corporate outsourcing sectors. I have operated as a proficient board member since 2002 in both public and private companies in Europe and Australia with a primary responsibility for business growth. My experience is diverse having been responsible for not only identifying, analysing, forecasting and recommending opportunities for growth but being responsible for ensuring the forecasts submitted were achieved. This has resulted in a balanced skill set which makes me a versatile leader capable of driving performance across teams of all sizes with a particular emphasis on culture and values.

I am an experienced P&L led senior manager with strong entrepreneurial leadership and business development experience and I fully understand the sensitivities associated with new market entry. I have also been instrumental in raising significant capital from the private sector in Australia in addition to his involvement in a GBP55m IPO on the London Stock Exchange.
