Jason joined as Chairman in November 2015 following the recent investment by Evolve Private Capital – a leading growth fund which invests in fast growing private businesses.

Jason established Evolve Private Capital in September 2015 following a successful career in Private Equity and Investment Banking, including over 7 years with Quadrant Private Equity (Australia’s leading private equity fund). Jason has held various Board Directorships on companies across multiple industries including retail, industrial, media, aged care and diversified investments.
Jason is also on the Board of AVCAL (Australian industry body representing Venture Capital and Private Equity), and is Chairman of the AVCAL Growth Fund Committee.
While at Quadrant, Jason led the investment in APN Outdoor Media which was awarded 2015 best private equity deal in its size category, with prior investments including Summerset, Quick Service Restaurants and Kathmandu. Prior to Quadrant, Jason was a senior investment banker with ABN AMRO and JP Morgan, following an earlier career at PWC which he joined in 1992.
