The Hilton Group

 

John Edward Hilton (Senior) emigrated to Sydney in October 1950 from the UK having owned Hotels in Mayfair amongst other property investments and furniture businesses in London, Manchester, the North of England and Cape Town after serving as a pilot in the Allied war effort in the Second World War.

 

He owned and founded the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, Australia under the Hilton Hotels Group, established in 1958, in Kings Cross and owned the Cargan Hotel in Elizabeth Bay overlooking Sydney Harbor. He also owned significant residential housing in Woolomoloo and Paddington, apartment buildings and furniture businesses in partnership with Nick Scali, which expanded to Melbourne.

 

He was joined in Sydney by his wife Muriel from the UK in 1952 and their son David Hilton in 1957 after finishing National Service in Germany.

 

David Hilton also had an illustrious commercial career in Singapore, KL and Sydney with Shell, Wearne Bros, Eastern Mining and Metals, The Guthrie Group and ABS White primarily as Finance Director before moving to Perth where he oversaw the integration of Justin Seward into what is now Knight Frank Hooker. David also built substantial private investment companies in both real estate development and the share market.

John founded the Greenwich Equities Family Office in Nedlands in 2002 before moving to the current Claremont Office in 2005.
