History

Ulton is a firm as dynamic and progressive as it is rich in tradition, heritage and history. We were founded in 1926 by Bill Schoch in Bundaberg. Later, when Bill’s son joined the business, we were renamed Schoch & Schoch, followed by Schoch, Schoch & Hancock after Ron Hancock was brought on as partner.

In 1966, Ron Hancock co-established Wide Bay Australia, one of Queensland’s largest building societies, forging a close working relationship between the society and our firm.

Peter Sawyer joined our firm in 1974 and was made a partner in 1977. In 1990, our firm’s name changed to Hancock, Sawyer & Partners.

In 1996, Peter Sawyer and Daryl Corpe bought Ron Hancock’s share in the firm, later renaming it Hancock Sawyer Corpe.

In September 2000 the firm’s name changed to Ulton, a name derived from the blending of ‘Ultimate’ (meaning the highest or most significant) and ‘on’ (meaning advancement with continued movement or action). Our new name reflects our efforts to actively achieve the best outcomes for our clients.
