Eight years on and we have grown from strength to strength and built a wonderful culture to underpin our solid global co-counsel partnerships which have been our forte whilst maintaining our presence in emerging markets. We have also continued our work on social impact projects with our pro bono assistance to the Sea Shepherd (as advisory panel member).
That said, we are technically around 36 years old when looking deeper into our history. Gilton Business Consultants was founded in 1982 by Mr John Milton Gillespie. The name Gilton is a combination of John’s surname Gillespie and his middle name Milton. John was the inaugural National President of the Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) and was a lifetime member of the MIA and Australian Institute of Administrative Law.
John passed away on 14 November 2011 and as we turn 8, we continue to fondly remember John and our history as Gilton Valeo. On that note, I want to say a big thank you to all our clients and partners from myself and the team. It has been an absolute pleasure witnessing our growth together with that of our clients.
