Jasna Sims

Group Head of Innovation Culture at Lendlease

Jasna has 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.  Though she is an architect, she has had a variety of roles, ranging from architecture, design management, project and programme management, value management, consulting and transformation.

One of her favourite quotes says that “your customers are rarely buying what you think that you’re selling”. So Jasna has spent a lot of her career seconded to her 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 her customer. Jasna gets energised about developing creative and innovative solutions.
