Cloud Galacticos

Our Story

Our journey to date has been amazing in many ways. Back in 2004, our CEO Phil Walton completed his first Salesforce migration. A year later it was the launch of ‘Phil Walton Consultancy’. Things really got going in 2013 with the appointment of Ben Duong as marketing lead, as well as setting up the Salesforce North England User Group.

Salesforce MVP recognition for Phil, partnering with Dazedworks, and being a sponsor of the London World Tour led to our rebrand into Cloud Galacticos. It was full steam ahead again with the appointment of Paul Battisson as our COO in 2018. Since then we’ve become a Salesforce Gold Partner, grown our core team to over 20 people, and increased our revenue well beyond our targets. Plus many happy customers…

Here’s to many more successful years in the Cloud Galacticos story.
