AIMSC today announced the resignation of Neil Willmett, from AIMSC’s board of directors. Neil has stepped down from the AIMSC Directorship, a position he has held since 2008, to focus on his other business interests.
Stephen Roberts, Chair of the AIMSC Board said, “I would like to take the opportunity to express the thanks of the AIMSC board and team for Neil’s support in launching AIMSC and contributing to it’s success to date. His drive and commitment to identifying ways in which the private sector, community sector and government can work together to develop the Indigenous business sector in Australia has brought increased awareness of and support for Indigenous businesses.”
Neil is the proprietor of the AIMSC certified Willmett Group – Business + Employment Services. In addition to his investments in growing the Willmett Group and setting up the Indigenous Business Council of Australia, of which he is chair, Neil also found the time to write a book on “How to start a successful Aboriginal business in Australia”. Neil is currently preparing to launch Australia’s first Indigenous business magazine called ‘Aboriginal Business Magazine’. This new nationally distributed, monthly publication will focus on Indigenous entrepreneurship, business success and leadership.
“We all wish Neil every success in the future and look forward to our continued partnership with him through his own business which is AIMSC certified and the Indigenous Business Council of Australia”, said Natalie Walker, AIMSC’s Chief Executive Officer.
