Veris Acquires Elton Consulting

Veris is pleased to announce the acquisition of Elton Consulting, a market leader in professional and advisory services for the property and built environment, transport, infrastructure, water, energy, housing and public policy sectors.

Established by Brian Elton in 1989, Elton Consulting consists of approximately 100 staff in offices located in New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory, with a presence in Queensland.

Elton Consulting provides strategic advice to all levels of government, the community sector and blue-chip clients in the private sector in the areas of:

  • Urban and Regional Planning
  • Communications and Engagement
  • Community Relations
  • Strategy and Policy
  • Social Sustainability

Elton has a dedicated and experienced team of senior management and consultants across each of its service offerings. Kim Anson, Chief Executive Officer of Elton, will continue to manage Elton Consulting and will lead Veris’ newly formed Professional and Advisory business, including integrating Veris’ existing urban and regional planning and urban design businesses.

Brian Elton will join the board of Veris as an Executive Director and will spearhead Veris’ strategy of developing the national business in professional and advisory services and will promote Veris’ service offerings across and into the National Surveying business.

The acquisition enhances Veris’ exposure to the east coast development cycle, particularly in New South Wales, and strong forecast investment in property, transport, healthcare, social and affordable housing and education projects.

This step-change acquisition provides Veris with an immediate, blue-chip and scalable entry to this sector, a strategic priority for Veris, which will enhance our client service offerings and financial returns.
