A Chartered Accountant with a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Adelaide, Asrar joined Geocon with more than 20 years’ experience in corporate treasury to his name.
He previously spent 14 years with Woolworths Group, during which time he steered the company through a diverse range of capital raisings. His extensive skills, along with a willingness to boldly put his own stamp on transactions and propose changes, resulted in Woolworths Group achieving significant cost benefits and access to unique markets.
Asrar joined us here at Geocon as Group Treasurer in March 2018, and has already begun solidifying our capacity to deliver on our vision of ‘Building Canberra’. Asrar manages Geocon’s growing capital and funding requirements, including group financial risk and insurance.
This involves upgrading the systems and processes underpinning these activities and providing cash flow forecasting, cash management activities, financial investment analysis and business cases as well as critical input to project and group debt restructuring.
A numbers man with a passion for high-level problem solving, Asrar is a Fellow of the Financial Services Institute of Australasia and of the Finance & Treasury Association.
