Our Top Story

Bettina Ramcke, Global Director of Business Implementation at JAS Worldwide

Lead with Passion: Bettina Ramcke's Approach to Work, Community, and Life

As the Global Director of Business Implementation at JAS Worldwide, Bettina has navigated the world of logistics with determination and a commitment to making a difference. Her involvement with The Sandy Springs Mission, a local nonprofit supported by The Bruni Foundation, JAS’s philanthropy aimed at enriching local communities, exemplifies her dedication to uplifting her team and those around her.

Bettina originally worked in the hospitality industry. Her path took a turn when she started helping with her family’s forwarding company, marking her introduction to logistics. This experience paved the way for her move to Australia, where she utilized her multilingual abilities and industry knowledge to support logistics for the Sydney Olympic Games. Over the next 15 years, Bettina worked diligently to hone her skills and expertise.

After a hiatus to recover from burnout, Bettina reentered the workforce, joining JAS to continue developing the business implementation structure. “I took two years off because I was burned out and I told myself, “I’m not going back to this industry, but what made me reconsider, was looking at JAS’s values and its commitment to giving back to the environment, and to communities. That was very important to me.”

Bettina’s ability to navigate this demanding field is rooted in her passion for logistics and her belief in the importance of being driven by what you love.

Beyond her professional accomplishments, Bettina’s heart is equally invested in community service. For the past 5 years, she has volunteered with non-profit organizations in Jamaica and with The Sandy Springs Mission, an Atlanta-based nonprofit dedicated to providing Latino students of all ages with the resources needed to lead a successful life during and after high school.

With the support of The Bruni Foundation, JAS’s philanthropic arm, Bettina has been instrumental in fostering a partnership that promises tangible benefits for local Atlanta children.

One of Bettina’s key initiatives is enhancing the Mission’s sports program for elementary and middle school students. She believes that exposure to different sports can significantly boost children’s confidence and encourage lifelong participation. “Enhancing the sports program will allow the kids to grow their confidence in joining their school’s sport teams, which would help in better life habits and could lead to future college scholarships” Bettina explains. This initiative is part of a broader one-year partnership with The Sandy Springs Mission, backed by a grant from The Bruni Foundation. The funding allows for the support of various sports programs, like improving the quality of the baseball camps, adding an introduction to volleyball, basketball and tennis sessions during the summer and after-school activities, and also provide sports gear. Bettina emphasizes that volunteering with the organization doesn’t always have to be signing up for week-long camps or committing long-hours, noting that volunteers can play a critical role just by volunteering for 1-2 hours during a camp or even helping parents translate and fill out paperwork.

Bettina Ramcke’s story is one of passion, and a commitment to making a difference. Whether through her work in logistics or her efforts with The Sandy Springs Mission, she exemplifies how dedication to both career and community can lead to meaningful impact. As she continues to lead with passion, Bettina remains a powerful example of how one person’s commitment can inspire widespread change and foster community growth.

If you’re in the Atlanta area and feel drawn to the purpose of The Sandy Springs Mission, find out more opportunities to volunteer today!
