Jeremy Rolleston is a two-time Winter Olympian, Australian representative in two sports, successful investment banker, author of 'A Life that Counts' and a sought after keynote speaker.
Jeremy is a proud Australian and regards representing his country as the ultimate honour. He has represented his country internationally in two sports - rugby and bobsleigh. In 2006 at the XX Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy Jeremy piloted Australia’s 2-man bobsleigh to the equal best-ever Australian result. Then at the most recent XXI Winter Olympics in Vancouver 2010, the Australian public shared the heartbreaking crash that Jeremy was involved in on the same track that had already tragically claimed the life of one Olympic athlete one week earlier. In what was a devastating situation Jeremy exemplified the honour, dignity and sportsmanship we look for in Olympians, not just when they win but when everything goes wrong.
During his rugby days, Jeremy played in numerous representative teams including the Australian Legends team, the Australian Universities team and the Australian B (Legends) sevens side. He also played professionally for Italian side Rovigo in the European Shield and Italian Championships before retiring to pursue bobsleigh.
Off the field and away from the ice, Jeremy has maintained a successful corporate career in finance and banking and is currently General Manager - Institutional Business at Perpetual Investments. He is also an Ambassador for the Global Poverty Project.
