Joint CEO John McBain’s 42 year real estate career in both Australasia and the UK spans the commercial and industrial markets and more latterly the healthcare and agriculture real estate sectors.
John and Jason Huljich founded Centuria Capital together over 25 years ago and the group now oversees more than $20 billion of assets under management including four separate publicly listed vehicles and over 400 staff throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines.
John is chiefly responsible for Centuria’s corporate team including corporate acquisitions and mergers. His responsibilities include corporate strategy as well as leadership of the Finance, Governance, Compliance, Corporate Investor Relations, Marketing, Communications and Centuria Life teams who report directly to him. He serves on the Non-Financial Risk Committee and the ESG Management Committee.
Since 2007, John has been instrumental in the integration of several businesses into the Centuria group, including the 360 Capital Group (2016), a majority interest in Heathley Asset Management (now Centuria Healthcare) (2019), New Zealand-based Augusta Capital Limited (now Centuria NZ) (2020) and Primewest Group (2021).
This corporate acquisition strategy, together with a highly successful asset acquisition and funds management program overseen by fellow CEO Jason Huljich, has seen the pair oversee significant corporate growth culminating in Centuria Capital Limited entering the S&P ASX 200 Index in July 2021.
John has a property valuation qualification from the University of Auckland.Connect with John McBain
