Centuria Capital has adapted its senior management structure to appoint Jason Huljich as joint chief executive alongside John McBain.
The two have worked together for more than 20 years building up the Centuria platform to $6 billion in assets under management and the group said the joint position was the future-proofing of the firm’s senior management.
Prior to taking on this role, Huljich worked as head of real estate and fund management and was also an executive director at the firm.
Centuria Capital chairman, Garry Charny, said: “For more than 20 years, John and Jason have built the Centuria platform to a point where it is recognised as a leader in its field. Jason is intrinsically part of the DNA of Centuria and this promotion has been championed by his co-founder and joint CEO, John McBain.
“The Board could not imagine two better stewards to collectively nurture the company in the years ahead and continue its growth and successes for the benefit of all securityholders.”
In light of the restructure, Ross Lees was promoted to head of funds management from his current role as fund manager of the Centuria Industrial REIT. He would continue managing the fund until a replacement manager is found.
