James Salt
A techy at heart, Constructive’s CEO, James, has lived and breathed house building since his early years.

He has a Masters of Engineering in Computer Science, but his career in construction tech began in a hands-on way: growing up on building sites — including the family home — and writing a custom CRM for his family’s home-building company. In those days, syncing data involved a dial-up modem!

Since then, James has amassed vast personal experience at management level in the construction industry, consulting in IT management, software and custom development in both Australia and the UK.

Prior to founding Constructive in 2016, he was the IT Manager of a building company, Implementation and Support Manager at ClickHome and was a freelance consultant for various house builders for several years.

James is a problem solver. He wears many hats at Constructive: leading our team and nurturing its culture, developing partnerships, working on integrations, steering product management and advocating for the voice of the customer to guide product feature development.

James loves to get out of phone range and cycle the off-road Munda Biddi Trail.
