"I hope to continue to pass on any knowledge and experience that I have obtained throughout my career, by mentoring, public speaking and coaching," said the former judoka, who has not competed since London 2012.
"This is something I am passionate about and I see it as a wonderful opportunity to give back and have a positive impact upon others through my own life experiences."
Paralympic coach Jean-Paul Bell praised Quilter for his achievements on the mat.
"I still get emotional watching the final contest in London, as it was the culmination of four years of hard work and the monumental refusal to give up on a dream when the odds are stack against you," said Bell.
British Judo Chairman Kerrith Brown added: "Ben has been a fantastic ambassador for the sport of judo in Great Britain.
"The whole of British Judo are extremely proud about what he achieved as an athlete."
