Although renowned for his diligence and professionalism across his 219-game career at St Kilda, Jason Blake is equally regarded for those same traits outside of the football sphere.

The former Saint has since built a successful career in construction and property development, holding senior roles at both Frasers Property Australia and the Aliro Group. Blake also served as a director of the AFL Players’ Association.

With elite sporting experience and a deep understanding of professional football programs adding to his well-established business acumen, Blake is ideally positioned to assist the club in its pursuit of success both on and off the field.

Blake was nominated by the Board as a replacement for outgoing director Danni Roche OAM, with his appointment ratified without objection at the club’s 2021 Annual General Meeting.
