Jeremy Rolleston is an accomplished individual with an intriguing background. On top of being an investment professional with two decades of experience across banking and asset management, he is also a two-time Olympian, and an innovative entrepreneur who combined his business skill and fitness and health knowledge to found award-winning B2B health and wellness company Active8me. Jeremy is also author of A Life That Counts and a sought after motivational speaker who equips and inspires audiences across the globe with his stories and lessons learned from the sporting field to the boardroom.
A native of Sydney, Australia, Jeremy founded Active8me five years ago while working in venture capital. His vision was to help people build healthier futures and to help address the epidemic of preventable chronic disease that accounts for almost 75% of deaths worldwide. Unlike the sea of fitness and health apps, Active8me is not another celebrity-led brand that markets to consumers. Rather, they work directly with companies who license the comprehensive mobile platform for their customers, employees and members. The platform provides targeted programs that deliver customized plans for users covering exercise, nutrition, mindset, tracking, wearables and more – combining everything into a convenient all-in-one solution.
With the emergence of COVID-19, the adoption of digital and preventative health solutions is accelerating, and Active8me is well positioned to leverage these prevailing dynamics. “Aspirational consumers want fitness, health, and wellness solutions. But more than that; the world needs preventative health solutions like Active8me. Covid-19 has reinforced that our health must be a priority. I hope Active8me can be part of the solution and make a difference in the lives of many,” Jeremy says.
Prior to founding Active8me, Jeremy enjoyed a successful career with roles that included managing director at Artesian Venture Partners, general manager at Perpetual Investments, and executive director at Goldman Sachs JBWere. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business information technology from the University of South Wales in combination with studies at the University of Illinois.
