We haven’t always been Langley & Co.
Founded in 1998 as Colin Gaetjens & Shaw, Toby Langley joined the business in 2002. In 2007, Toby took control of the business and appointed Mike Calneggia the following year to manage it’s activities in Western Australia. In 2011 Stephen Strachan joined the business after a distinguished career with the Winemakers Federation of Australia.
Colin Gaetjens the joint founder of the business retired from executive duties in 2018 which prompted the name change from Gaetjens Langley to Langley & Co.
Like the Australian wine and beverage industry, our team has shared the highs and lows of a cyclical business and importantly continues to evolve to meet its complex demands.
As a company we have an intimate knowledge of the industry and a proven track record working with all facets of the industry.
We have worked with all of the major wine companies, institutional investors and multinationals, often on more than one occasion maintaining relationships and business networks.
We have also worked with many of Australia’s First Families of Wine and smaller ultra-premium wine businesses, again often on multiple occasions as their businesses grow and develop.
What hasn’t changed is our commitment to servicing the wine and beverage sector and our endeavour to provide outstanding, commercially relevant advice.
We invite you to view the companies we have worked with here.
