Chief Operating Officer
Jamie proudly joined COMPEL CEOs in 2019 coming from a career in Retail Banking at Bank of America. As COO, she fits right in with her entrepreneurial spirit, bringing to the industry a refreshing take on what it means to be a CEO in today’s world.
Having received an MBA in Business Analytics in 2016 at Mercy College, Jamie solidified her position as the next generation of COMPEL CEOs. It’s been extremely rewarding for both the business and Jamie, as she works side by side with her dad and the founder, Steve Ramerini. She has proved invaluable by contributing to the organizational structure, providing process improvements and advancing business development, allowing Steve and COMPEL’s facilitators to focus on what they do best: providing Executives with the tools they need to succeed in business.
Located in Southern Connecticut, Jamie is excited at the opportunity to expand the business to Fairfield County. An avid believer in Connecticut's small business community and an award-winning entrepreneur herself (click here to see her early work with BluStrip), Jamie looks forward to expanding the business onward and upward. Jamie enjoys the reputation of being a bubbly go-getter with a high energy lifestyle. Outside of the business environment, you'll have trouble spotting her on the map as she travels the world in pursuit of everything new.
COMPEL CEOs Facilitators
"COMPEL has had a significant role in my professional development for almost my entire career. Being an active COMPEL member for nearly 15 years, I was excited to make the leap to facilitator and share my experiences with other next generation business leaders. Having the opportunity to work with the next generation who will be leading Long Island businesses into the future has been beyond rewarding. Similar to my experience as a COMPEL member, it’s been great to watch my members challenge each other, support each other and build bonds that will last a lifetime."

As a COMPEL Facilitator, I support leaders and their teams as they tackle the everyday issues and opportunities facing the modern workplace. Their success is a direct result of our proven process - spending time on assessing, coaching and developing themselves and their organizations. And success of our members will lead to the success and economic development of our community at large.
