View all Profiles

Gillian Mailman is a proud Bidjara women and trailblazer who sets, rather than follows trends. This started at a young age where Gillian became the first Aboriginal female Electrician in Australia.

In 2003 Gill started her own fibre optics company – Fibre Optics North Queensland (NQ). Fibre Optics NQ services many clients including Local, State and Federal Governments. In 2013, Gill established the Joint Venture ICT Connect, a merger between Fibre Optics NQ and MJB Solutions of which Gill is the Managing Director and CEO.

Drawing on her experience as the first Aboriginal female Electrician, Gill wanted other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to experience similar opportunities to herself. Gill invests a significant portion of her time supporting fellow Indigenous entrepreneurs and businesses to gain opportunities across the telecommunications, civil, mining and other growth industries.

Gill’s philosophy is that greater prosperity can be achieved by Indigenous businesses working together rather than in direct competition with each other.
