After a long career in the beer industry working for Bass Charrington (UK), Castlemaine Perkins, Matilda Bay, and CUB / Fosters, in 2006 Jamie became a director at Dig Marketing Group, a marketing agency focused on the food and drink sector.
He then co-founded Stone & Wood Brewing Co in 2008 with Brad Rogers and Ross Jurisich. Stone & Wood has grown rapidly over the last ten years to become the second largest independent brewery in Australia.
In recent years the founders have created a family of businesses under the Fermentum banner. Fermentum includes Stone & Wood, Fixation Brewing Co, Granite Belt, Forest for the Trees, and a distribution business Square Keg. In late 2018 whilst maintaining his role as Executive Chairman of Fermentum, he joined the board of the Independent Brewers Association as Chair.
