He understands his client’s key drivers and strategy and helps to develop messaging for Boards, Audit Committees and Executive Team that delivers an impact.

"I love to learn more about my client's business and their operations as this, not only increases my personal knowledge base but also puts me in a better position to provide practical recommendations to my clients. I also really value the professional relationships that I have built over the years that have been mutually beneficial, and in some cases have evolved into friendships".

Outside of work, Jayesh loves to travel and play soccer socially with friends. He admits he is useless for the music category at trivia night, as he cannot remember an artist or song title to save his life.

Jayesh Kapitan is a Partner of RSM Australia Partners and a Director of RSM Australia Pty Ltd.
