JAM International is led by a dedicated team, who are responsible for steering JAM International’s global activities. The team is responsible for overseeing the efficient and effective running of the organisation, as well as increasing the presence of JAM on the international non-profit sector for the benefit of those we serve. Being involved in a range of humanitarian and missionary work means the JAM leadership team is more tuned in to what is happening in the development sector.
Here’s a brief synopsis of JAM International’s leadership team, specifically relating to each of their areas of education, expertise and interests:
Carel Meganck is a team-focused communicator continually building on relationships and promoting synergy to drive positive change. A demonstrated history in planning, launching and co-ordinating marketing and fundraising campaigns provides the JAM UK team with insight and experience to successfully raise funds and help feed our beneficiaries. With a background in general management as well as marketing, Carel began as a JAM volunteer in early 2019 and quickly transitioned to a full-time employee. His passion for service, and a heart for Africa (as a South African himself!) lends itself perfectly to aligning with JAM’s strategy of Helping Africa Help Itself.
Simon McGregor acted as Country Representative for JAM in Sierra Leone in 2018, celebrating successful launch of the JAM UK project in Sierra Leone during this period. In the UK, Simon is focused on engaging with government, development institutions, impact investors and foundations in order to grow our partnerships. These efforts help to expand our funding reach in this country, by fostering positive relationships with relevant industry stakeholders.
