Jamie Ramsden brings 25 years of international business experience to AIIR, including a decade as a Chief Executive, where he created significant and sustained business results through intense customer focus, disciplined processes, and highly engaged teams. He has been an Executive Coach for over 15 years with clients in the UK, Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

During his time at Goodridge USA, Jamie created a change initiative that transformed the company and resulted in 400% growth over a seven-year period. During this time, he and his team also built infrastructure, energized employees, and implemented LEAN systems. This yielded world-class supplier awards from Goodridge’s OEM customers and resulted in significant top- and bottom-line improvements. After this business transformation, Jamie guided Goodridge to a private equity acquisition as part of the global leadership team in 2013.

Jamie is currently the founder and Chief Executive of Adastra Consulting, LLC, a strategic partner of AIIR Consulting. His clients include corporate, government, non-profit, and private organizations around the globe. In 2021, Jamie was the recipient of AIIR's prestigious Coaching Leadership Award, which recognizes coaches who have demonstrated an exceptional impact on our clients, our organization, and on the coaching industry

Jamie received advanced leadership training from the CCL, where he is adjunct faculty, and is certified in several instruments, including all CCL 360 assessments, the Myers Briggs (MBTI), the Change Style Indicator, the Campbell Leadership Index, and the Coaching Mindset Index. He is certified by the International Coaching Federation at ACC level.

Outside of work, Jamie enjoys keeping balance through sports, music, and exercise, as well as spending time with his wife of over 20 years and their four children. He is the author of Let’s Go! How Great Leaders Shape the Future, which launches in May 2024.
