Jason Tabbara

Founder and Chairman
Campustree
Ottawa, Ontario
jason@campustree.com

In addition to overseeing the development of Campustree, Jason Tabbara provides consulting services internationally within the telecommunications, petroleum, and service sectors. His business background, and commitment to the Ottawa community inspired him to create this innovative website, which he describes as his 'most important and engaging new venture yet'. As a regular mentor to college and university students, Jason noticed a need for knowledge of services and products available to students; and the awareness of how best to leverage them. He discovered that success looks different for each student, given his or her unique profile (i.e. skill sets, goals, personality, thinking style, etc.). On the heels of his observations, Jason invited experts from the educational sector; as well as consultants and leaders from the local community, to orchestrate a viable, effective, and universal solution for students across Canada. Campustree is the outcome.
 
Prior to his role as Chairman of Campustree, Jason gained extensive experience with the launch, deployment, and eventual sale of several successful new ventures – Learnet College, Navworks, and Cansultex. Of particular note was the diversity in the three ventures (telecommunications, technological, and international trade). In 2008, Jason joined the Radiation Protection Bureau with Health Canada as a Senior Marketing Analyst to help launch and market a new product. His achievements earned him recognition as one of Ottawa’s most successful young entrepreneurs.
