About James Tonelli

From humble beginnings

James began his journey in his early twenties, breaking into the retail industry and traveling overseas where he sourced premium food products that were then introduced to the Australian market.

These products are now household names.

At the time, James was offered the unique opportunity to start up the brands exclusively in Australia. After careful consideration, James embarked on a more challenging, fulfilling role, that of General Manager in the manufacturing, wholesaling and retail sector. The group of companies he helmed had a turnover of over $10 million p.a, staff of over 170, but very little in the way of Information Technology.

After 18 years of hard work and innovation under James’ leadership, the group’s turnover had risen to over $130 million per annum, it now employed a staff of over 450, and it was at the forefront of IT innovation.

James had achieved all his goals at the group, and set about seeking new challenges.

Opportunity at a time of change

In 2000, businesses across the country experienced the most significant change to the Australian taxation system, with the introduction of the GST. Seeing the inevitable challenges ahead, James seized the opportunity to create a new venture, establishing Unique Business Management Pty Ltd.

James began his new undertaking from the ground up. New tax requirements demanded the development of innovative systems, processes, and procedures that would see his clients’ legal obligations met while his business operated at optimum capacity.

James delivered. Not only did his business innovations succeed, but he found himself sharing the secrets of his success via mentorships, ensuring personal and professional growth for his clients. This became a highlight of his already distinguished career.

A new direction

By 2016, James was managing a successful business and had achieved all that he had set out to accomplish. It was time for a change; a natural progression that would shift his focus from figures to far greater assets — people.
Selling Unique Business Management, James then embarked upon the next phase of his accomplished career with his new business, Blue Walnut Solutions Pty Ltd.

Blue Walnut Solutions Pty Ltd exists specifically to pass on James’ invaluable knowledge, experience, and wisdom so that others might prosper.
