Jesse Moors - BA (2012), MIntBus (2014)
Throughout my professional journey, I have sought out challenges that not only aid my development, but also have the opportunity to add value to my colleagues, stakeholders and employer. Whether I was guiding stakeholders in the emerging markets of Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Timor Leste, or positioning and driving Spatium Capital’s differentiated offering in a mature marketplace, inclusion of people’s contributions and considerations are crucial to build buy-in and overall success of the project or task.
I believe with this blend of skills and experiences, my contribution to the Alumni Council will be realised through my efforts to be inclusive and strategic in all endeavours. Further, a willingness to ‘get my hands dirty’ is an everyday occurrence as a self-employed firm owner, so I very much look forward to assisting in raising the Faculty’s profile in both Australia and abroad.
The University of Melbourne, including the Graduate House, have been phenomenal networks and support structures to myself and co-founder Nick as we embarked on launching Spatium Capital. Joining the Alumni Council will be an opportunity to both return the favour by supporting Council initiatives, and also a chance to be available to other alumni looking to explore their own ventures.
Jesse holds a Bachelor of Arts (Criminology & Spanish) from the University of Melbourne and a Master of International Business from the Melbourne Business School (in conjunction with the Faculty of Business & Economics). Since entering the professional workforce in 2014, Jesse has held roles within insolvency and corporate finance, business development, market-penetration strategy design, and most recently, as co-founder and Director of Spatium Capital; an Australian boutique Funds Management firm investing in ASX listed equities. In this role, Jesse oversees client relations and engagement, business operations and strategy, and shares responsibility for the investment management decision process with co-founder Nick.
Over the course of his career, Jesse has been fortunate to develop an inquisitive and measured approach to thrive in unpacking complex problems. Previously, Jesse has sat on multi-cultural and international committees and boards, tasked with bringing capacity-building resources and negotiation skills to the table. His professional journey has taken Jesse to interesting places (Fiji, Papua New Guinea & Timor Leste) as well as all Australian capital cities (except Canberra!) and New Zealand.
To date, Spatium Capital is Jesse’s proudest professional achievement as it has taught him to embrace disruption whilst remaining convicted to original processes.
