Management Team


Ryan Walmsley | Managing Director AscendCorp

  • Established and operated Meriton Strata Management for over 8 years
  • Established and operated Meriton’s Facilities Management company for over 10 years
  • Asset Operations Manager for Meriton Apartments, reporting to the Managing Director, Harry Triguboff AO
  • Intricate knowledge of Strata, Facilities and Property Management
  • Extensive knowledge and full exposure to the set-up, initial period and management of complex buildings

Ryan’s career is highlighted by an extended tenure with one of Australia’s largest Developers. Reporting as Operations Manager and setting up management divisions providing both Facilities Management and Strata Management services, Ryan has developed a deep insight into the development process and post completion management.

Ryan founded and operated Meriton Strata Management for over 8 years until it’s eventual sale due to legislative changes. In doing so, he developed a keen understanding of the benefits of fostering a professional working relationship between the Strata Manager, Developer and Owners Corporation in ensuring all requirements are fulfilled and managed at the various stages of the development cycle. As the development process overlaps from one stage to the next, it is imperative that the transitions are managed effectively, and communication remains at the forefront to ensure all stakeholders are satisfied with the end result.
