Bob established Gibsons Consulting in Brisbane in 1974 and retired from the company in 2004 to pursue his many other interests.
Bob has been an iconic figure in consulting in Queensland for 40 years. He began his working life as a mechanical engineer working with major manufacturing businesses in the UK and Canada. He returned to Australia, completed a commerce degree and established Gibson Associates, later Gibsons Consulting. He recognised that manufacturing businesses needed management consulting support from people who could understand and appreciate a technical environment and built Gibsons around that capability.
He maintains an active interest in the development of technology companies and is a director of or mentor to a number of businesses in that space.
Bob joined the advisory board in 2016 and brings a wealth of experience in shaping the future of Gibsons.
