Our story

With a unique, longterm vision, an unwavering focus on our team and continued growth across 3 countries, we have an inspiring story to tell.

Altis was founded in 1998 by Gavin Cooke and Hyun Choi, with a vision to grow a living company that would continue to be prosperous in 100 years. They drew inspiration from Arie de Geus’ seminal book, ‘The Living Company‘ and uniquely, they were not building a business to sell, instead they wanted to foster a culture that would outlast them.

As Altis grew, it was important to formalise the core values of the business, and following extensive team and customer research, the core ethos of ‘Connecting with Courage, Heart, and Insight’ became the central framework. In simple terms it means the firm commitment of our team to building lasting relationships with our clients and sharing the responsibility of delivering their outcomes. Although we have evolved from an implementation partner to designing and delivering tangible outcomes across the information management value chain, this ethos has remained at our core.

We also implemented the Service Profit Chain, which is the management philosophy that  happy, engaged team would equate to happy loyal clients, and the by-product is success.  From the beginning our focus was on the success of the team and our clients, not profits. This has proven to be a success within Altis in that the average tenure of our team members is over five years and that we continue to partner with our first client, 17 years on.

Since our first steps into Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence in 1998, we now have five offices across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, working within a range of industries including Telecommunications, Health, Transport and Logistics, FSI, Higher Education and Government.

Best Place to Work

For seven consecutive years, we have been selected as an employer of choice – and perhaps just as importantly, by our own people.

In 2007 we set the goal of becoming a recognised employer of choice, and worked on fostering a culture where the whole team felt motivated, engaged, proud to be part of the Altis family and enjoyed coming to work. Aligned with our vision, we have built a business that focuses on customer and staff success, actively promoting a dynamic work environment where diversity, camaraderie and professional excellence help define our company culture.

Our commitment to this fundamental area of business has seen us recognised in BRW’s Annual ‘Best Places to Work’ seven years in a row since 2010, and is why we’re able to attract and retain the best people in the industry.

We understand the importance of safeguarding a healthy work-life balance, and as a result we enjoy a healthy retention rate, with our annual employee survey showing that over 80% of our team are satisfied and engaged within their role at Altis.
