Having served for a short eight months, Gillian resigned from his post at ONPA upon accepting an offer from Chuuk State to become the new Director of the Department of Administrative Services.

During his short time at the Chuuk Field Office, Gillian was delegated the responsibility as the officer-in-charge to oversee the day-to-day operations and to supervise and manage three other staff at the new office.

An able leader and manager, Gillian was instrumental in the overall operation of ONPA through the achievement of many of the operational targets set for the Chuuk Field Office in fiscal year 2007.

On October 2, 2007, Gillian resigned from ONPA to take on a challenging position at the Chuuk State Government as the new Director of the Department of Administrative Services.

ONPA staff applauded Gillian's career decision realizing that his contribution at DAS will be for the benefit of the greater populace of the long-suffering citizens of Chuuk State .

Gillian has rich financial skills under his belt having served in various capacities in Honolulu and in Pohnpei spanning a twenty-year period. Gillian worked for seven years as an auditor at ONPA before leaving the FSM for Honolulu back in 1994.  While residing in Honolulu , Gillian held positions as a financial analyst, an accountant, and an auditor.
