Jasna Sims

Group Head of Innovation Culture, Lendlease

I have 20+ years’ experience in the property and construction industries; the past 17 of those have been working for Lendlease in the UK, the USA and now in Australia.  Trained as an architect, I’ve had a variety of roles, ranging from architecture, design management, project and programme management, value management, consulting and transformation. 

One of my favourite quotes says that “your customers are rarely buying what you think that you’re selling”.   So I’ve spent a lot of my career seconded to my customer’s organisations, such as London Underground in the UK, BP in the US and the Commonwealth Bank in Australia to get a true understanding of my customer.   I get energised about developing creative and innovative solutions.

I love working for Lendlease. We’re forward thinking and committed to delivering innovative, sustainable places. And we care about our customers, people and the communities in which we operate. With dedicated innovation resources, an innovation framework and investment in the innovation culture and discipline, we are providing even more support for innovation than ever. In my role as the Group Head of Innovation Culture, I support our businesses to create opportunities and environments in which we can repeatedly deliver the best, most innovative solutions for our customer’s evolving needs.
