More About Jamie Forster

As a business owner, I am used to achieving a lot with not much. I built a business from scratch, with limited resources and in a hostile and uncertain legislative environment.

Before establishing my business, I managed a key division within Macquarie Bank which included control of a multi-million-dollar budget, senior professional staff and multiple internal and external stakeholders.

I also headed up the project to design, test and implement one of the first major online stockbrokers in Australia. At the time, this project was the very essence of innovation.

As a manager with ASX, I worked with member organisations to transition ASX from a mutual organisation to a listed public company.

I have had strong engagement with a variety of groups associated with business over many years including participation in ATO working groups, sitting on a variety of committees and consulting to industry representatives.

My community involvement started as a very young boy when I was co-opted into hauling Lions Christmas cakes around my neighbourhood. Since then I have been continuously engaged in my local community.

My recent involvement includes being a volunteer tutor with St Vincent de Paul, sitting on the committee of the Windsor and Districts Historical Society and engaging with community groups including Youngcare and the Valley Chamber of Commerce.
