Meet Westpac Strata Boss - Jason Roach

Wednesday, 08th August 2012

Jason Roach - National Head Real Estate and Professional Services at Westpac

Let's find out a little about the man behind Westpac Strata and why Westpac has turned its attention to strata.

Jason Roach has identified the Strata Management industry as one that needed greater banking competition.  He also acknowledges there is a heightened need for lot owners to be educated.  He shares with use where he does his best thinking and who in life he most admires. 

What was your first job?

My first job was a pizza delivery driver when I was at University.

What motivated you to join the strata industry?

Westpac identified the Strata Management industry as one that needed greater banking         competition, creating an exciting opportunity to build our banking solutions.

What is the best advice you have every received?

Listen first, speak second.

How has the industry changed over the past five years?

The Strata Management industry has seen tremendous growth in the last decade as demand for medium density swelled.  This has resulted in many new participants and created an industry that is fiercely competitive.  However, as new property development has slowed over the last few years there has been an increasing trend toward consolidation and pricing of new business will be a real challenge going forward.

What changes would you like to see moving forward?

As the industry grows and the demands being placed on Strata Managers becomes more acute, there is a heightened need for Lot Owners to be educated on the importance and value of a Strata Manager.  Education and continuing professional development for Strata Managers will also help them in their daily roles in terms of providing value and business management.

Where do you do your best thinking?

In my role leading a national business I spend a lot of time in planes and taxis so my most productive thinking time is when I'm in transit.

Who do you most admire and why?

My wife - she runs a household, organises our kids and has a thriving business of her own which she built from scratch with her friend.

How do you unwind outside of work?

Spending time with my family at our farm - getting away from the city allows me to recharge the batteries.
