Who and Why?

Gordon Kay - AHBC Manager & Business Owner - All Areas
The Adelaide Hills Business Centre was started by Gordon Kay, a well-known business owner throughout Australia for more then 30 years. 

In 2000 Gordon was approached by the SA state government to join a small group of respected business entrepreneurs to head up a group coaching program for business owners.  Over a period of 12 years Gordon worked with more then 700 business owners to enhance their businesses resulting in many gaining greater market share and increased profits.  Many have become leaders in their industry and recipients of national and state business awards. 

In more recent times, government funded programs and business centres have not been creating an entrepreneurial environment to simulate new ideas, business or jobs.

This was particularly so in regional regions area including the Adelaide Hills, Mount Barker, Alexandrina, Barossa, Fleurieu and Murray Lands

In 2010, he sold his national technology business and set about purchasing and remodelling an 1850's bungalow in the main street of Woodside to turn into a business rich resource centre.

The centre is now home to many business owners and while still early days have seen new businesses gain investment backing, grow with control and be the recipient of industry awards.

If you are starting a new business or need some direction with your current business, then Gordon is someone you should be talking to.
