Jonathan Gavshon

CEO

Jonathan has a background in Business and Finance. Dementia and the aged care sector are also very close to his heart, having had a grandfather pass away from the disease. He has studied and worked overseas and in Australia. Prior to joining Group Homes Australia he worked at The Optical Company, a network of 30 glasses stores focusing on business development. Prior to that he worked at Allegro Private Equity, working alongside the CEO on the national rollout of a network of 50 mother and baby stores. He co-founded a start-up called Twobirds Bridesmaid, a retailer and wholesaler of bridal wear. From 2000-2007, he lived in New York where he was Vice President of J.P. Morgan’s Equity Capital Markets division. He is also passionate about the broader community, having founded The Observership Program, a not-for-profit focused on the leadership and development of young professionals. He has an undergraduate degree in Commerce and Masters degree in Business Administration. Jonathan is married to Daniella and has three children, who you may see around the homes…. they love to socialise!
