Jami is the mental health service for the Jewish community to which Laurie was appointed as its first Chief Executive in 2007. Prior to Jami, he spent 5 years in financial modelling at the London Business School before working for 13 years with his own specialist engineering company serving the process industries.
Since joining in 2007, Laurie has supported significant growth and development at Jami with a shift in services to focus on mental health recovery and outcome-based provisions. Laurie has a keen interest in impact measurement, and this is reflected in Jami’s operations. Under Laurie’s direction, Jami has developed various partnership and collaborative initiatives, most notably the creation of a single mental health service for the Jewish community in London and the South East with Jewish Care.
