Team

In sport, reputation is everything and legacy is just as important as a game-day performance.

Our team helps people in sport to realise their full potential at every stage of their career – and life.

Jason Bakker

Jason Bakker founded Signature Sport in 2007 after spending 13 years playing elite cricket and working for Cricket Victoria in marketing and commercial development.

Jason is passionate about identifying and nurturing the careers of young athletes. His personal and thoughtful management-style has helped to shape the careers of more individuals both in their sporting pursuits and their long-term future. This dual focus is the quality which distinguishes Signature Sport.

Jason has three children, so home life is often as busy as work. To escape, Jason enjoys a morning ride most days, cooks a good pizza and fervently supports his AFL team, the Geelong Cats.
