Our Team

Ross Jones

CEO Growth Corporation

Ross joined the Diocese as the inaugural CEO of the Growth Corporation in September 2019. Previously, Ross worked for 29 years in major infrastructure development; 9 years in Government and then 20 years in engineering consulting with Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) and then global consultancy Jacobs, when it bought SKM. Ross is one of two NSW Government Mentally Healthy Workplace Ambassadors due to the work he has done in changing attitudes and practices towards mental illness in the engineering and construction industries.

Ross has held a range of domestic, regional and global business leadership, operational, client and project management roles and was a Company Director of Jacobs. Ross has worked in project management and project governance roles on predominantly major energy, road and rail transport design and environmental projects along the full life cycle of the projects from strategic business case, through concept to detailed design and then construction.

Ross joined the Growth Corporation in the hope that the skills and background built up in his secular career might make a difference to the way the Diocese plans, designs and funds property initiatives to have a positive impact on ministry and evangelism. He is a firm believer in teamwork and is keen to enhance collaboration between relevant Diocesan organisations and parishes to further the Kingdom.

Ross attends Narrabeen Anglican Church, is married to Sarah and has 4 kids. He is studying towards a Diploma of Biblical Theology at Moore.
