In 1969 Hylton Mackley AM founded what is now New Zealand's largest marketing communications group. That company (Colenso) was merged into the Clemenger Group and relocated to Melbourne in 1987. Hylton remains a significant shareholder and director of the Clemenger Group.
In addition to being Treasurer of the Victorian Artists Society, Hylton is also a director of the Barnett Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation involved in the affordable housing sector.
Hylton continues to be active in owning racehorses. Breeding and racing thoroughbreds has been a life-long passion of his.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
