GNC Group appointed to Victorian Government PAS Panel


Melbourne-based management consulting firm GNC Group has this month been appointed to the Victorian Government’s Professional Advisory Services (PAS) panel. Speaking from the firm’s Melbourne office, GNC Group Partner Nick Johnston said:

We see this as a great opportunity for GNC Group to formalise our working relationship with the Victorian government. We have already done some planning and budget work with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and are keen to broaden our activity across other departments. We are confident we can bring the commercial acumen we use across the private sector to add real value in the public sector.

GNC Group adds value for its clients through the application of rigorous commercial principles and project delivery. The firm has recently upgraded its website – – to reflect both its commercial toolkit and its expansion into new offices interstate in NSW and overseas in Malaysia. Nick spoke of how the business projects itself through the website:

We wanted to clearly outline how we operate, including some of the tools and capability sets we bring. From project management to commercial dashboards and labour planning, we have formalised a GNC Group Toolkit which can help us quickly move into execution mode and help solve our clients’ problems.

GNC Group is a management consulting firm which has its origins in retail, with each of the three partners having spent 20+ years in senior roles across the retail and commercial landscape. The firm’s engagements extend up and down the value chain, with a particular focus on integrated project planning and delivery. GNC Group employs more than fifty consultants with clients across Australia, Asia and the United Kingdom.


Unlike traditional advisory consulting organisations which provide advice and then leave, GNC Group services extend to the development and execution of strategic initiatives. Current GNC Group clients include Coles, Target, Ingham’s, Toyota, Myer, Petbarn, Uniting Church of Australia, CoINVEST, Country Road, The Reject Shop and Tasman Meats.
