CHRIS WILSON - Principal

Like many of my clients, I share the passion for business management. I have acted as an adviser, strategist, negotiator and counsellor to hundreds of business owners. Over the journey, I have gained a wealth of knowledge about what makes businesses and their owners tick. I am passionate about understanding the key drivers of business performance and helping business owners achieve their full potential.

My business life has taken me through all sorts of structures including private business partnerships and executive roles in listed public companies. More recently, I established Wilson Pateras in conjunction with Nick Pateras. We recognised a gap in the market place for a more personalised approach to servicing clients needs. 

The world is constantly changing which creates new challenges for business owners. In these times Wilson Pateras remains a constant to help guide our clients towards future success.

In my personal life I am happily married with four children and enjoy a keen interest in contemporary and classical music and support the Cats. I also provide my services to a number of organisations assisting disadvantaged members of the community.



In 2009 I realised my lifelong dream of going into business as a co-founder of Wilson Pateras. Being in business is a natural state for me. I am passionate about seeing our organisation grow by continually enhancing our services offered and in turn helping my clients do the same. 

I believe being in business is more than a financial reward. It is a unique growth journey where I can help business owners discover newfound capabilities and add significant contributions to their communities.

My journey commenced in 2000 at KPMG where I established the foundations of my business career. I then moved to WHK and joined Chris; together we have developed a joint passion for delivering proactive advisory services to our clients. 

I am increasingly active in the community including the City of Yarra Business Advisory Group as a local business representative to contribute towards both business and community growth. 

I am a family man and enjoys spending time with my wife and baby. I also love watching the Mighty Hawks!
