James Sialepis has come a long way since joining the Meriton sales staff 21 years ago. Today he is the national director of sales at Meriton and a director of Meriton Group. He oversees strategic sales management of off-the-plan and existing apartment projects totalling more than $1 billion a year.
When James joined Meriton in 1996 he was a nervous university graduate armed with a degree in land economics.
He has progressed to become a key player in Meriton’s success and has been integral to the group‘s transformation from a business that focused on selling apartments to investors who wanted to take advantage of negative gearing.
Today James and his team are offering buyers lifestyles – apartments that target families and people down-sizing and come with resort-like facilities such as pools, spas, saunas, landscaped gardens, childcare centres and even dining and café options. That ‘recipe’ delivers nearly 2000 sales a year.
