Jamie Brandenburg is an entrepreneur and seasoned business development executive with a passion for innovation, impacting culture, and supporting a positive world-view through his profession. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, Philosophy and Communications from Georgetown College in 1998, he cut his entrepreneurial teeth in the mortgage industry. Jamie owned and operated Union Centre Mortgage, a successful multi-office mortgage brokerage, for 9 years. During this time, he became interested in real estate and began purchasing properties for rental, renovation, and land development. He also founded Commercial Investment Source during this period to specialize in securing private equity and hard money funding for commercial projects with a focus on real estate.
After leaving the real estate and finance industries in late 2008, Jamie began a career of strategy-focused business consulting with Momentum Group Consulting and FSH Strategy Consultants, as well as leadership training with Transformational Leadership. During this time, he has consulted with many businesses and has taken on various roles in several start-ups to get them off the ground. It has been fun, challenging, and often exciting, and has given him a unique perspective as well as a wide variety of knowledge and skills ranging from sales, to operations, marketing, relationship development and management, strategy, leadership, forecasting, evaluation, and innovation. Jamie’s primary areas of coaching and consulting include: sales, sales training, relationship management, leadership, business strategy, systemization, networking, organizational culture development, new business start-ups, and resourcing.
In 2009, he, along with his wife, formed a local not-for-profit in Ohio. For four years they organized programs for churches and businesses to feed and clothe the underserved in their local community. After a move to Nashville, Tennessee in December of 2012, Jamie co-founded and led MakeWay Wellness, a social marketing company, from the point of start-up to market penetration. Jamie and his family currently reside in Nashville, TN.
