Jason Penrose

Associate Director

B App Sc, Post Grad Dip (Mgmt), Cert Exec Leadership

Through a diverse professional background, Jason has a unique set of complementary commercial, consulting, management and project delivery skills, gained across a range of industries both in Australia and overseas.  He has a particular interest in the emerging disruptive digital markets and the impact of these on established commercial conventions, models and procurement practices and processes.

Following three years as a member of the Commonwealth Bank Group Procurement leadership team, Jason launched Jamecam Consulting in May 2013. From early 2017 until mid-2019 Jason held Director level roles within the Westpac Group Commercial Services team, including a period acting as Chief Procurement Officer.

Prior to joining Commonwealth Bank, Jason spent 10 years in senior roles with two marketing services providers. Before this, he held a range of sales, marketing and leadership positions in Australia and overseas.

"It is a time of transformation for the procurement and supply chain professions, driven by a range of rapidly moving macro and micro factors. I believe Grosvenor, as a mid-sized, innovative and nimble advisory firm is incredibly well-positioned to deliver client-focused solutions to clients that can evolve rapidly to be in front of these changes.  I’ve been incredibly impressed by the quality of thinking and bold advice that GPG produces."
