I believe that the Hawkesbury can grow and maintain a stable and thriving local economy and that being an active member of the Chamber is an important part of this goal.
Having continually operated my own businesses since the age of 16, I love to share my experience and help others achieve their business aims. When not working in my business or serving on various community and charity boards, I enjoy teaching industry and business skills for TAFE NSW.
Matthew Atkins – Executive Committee
Owner of Plate Events & Catering
Having grown up in the local region as well as worked in the Hawkesbury business sector, I’m proud to run my own small business here and serve on the Executive Committee of our Chamber. I’m very passionate about keeping business local and utilising services closer to home to grow the local economy. I wear many hats having worked and trained in Hospitality, Events, Retail & Marketing and am very creative in these roles. I’m a sound believer in a business looking the part it needs to play in providing its products and services to attract clients and maintain a standard for them to ensure repeat business.
I’m excited to serve the Chamber for another term and look forward to continuing to build our Chamber up for the benefit of existing Members and our local area.
Sandra McKinney – Executive Committee
Marketing, Sales & Service Manager for Macquarie Community College
After many years of working in the medical laboratory science and corporate life science industries, 2015 saw me enter the world of adult education at Macquarie Community College. Over the last 4 years at MCC I have worked in the management of marketing, sales and service operations and actively network in our local communities, to better understand the challenges and needs of these communities and how MCC can provide better futures for our clients and communities through lifelong learning. Being a member of the Chamber for the past 4 years and now an Executive Committee member is very exciting indeed and I look forward to providing value and assistance to the Chamber team and to the Hawkesbury community.
Krystina Francica – Executive Committee
My experience as a small business owner began in 2007 when my husband and I established our own Electrical business specializing in automation. As a young couple with a growing family, the plunge into business ownership was not without challenge. On the ground experience, and a compulsion for study, I established an accounts / bookkeeping company in 2009. My directorship of this company enables me and my staff to share our skills and experiences with other business owners.
It has been this love of learning that has seen the development of my relationship with the Hawkesbury. I pursued the development of an early learning center for the Windsor District culminating in the purchase of The Alphabet Academy, a family focused center, where enjoyment for learning, in a personalized environment is the priority.
My subsequent association with the Hawkesbury Chamber of Commerce has meant that my skills in leadership, success in small business along with a passion for learning can be combined in a collaboration with other business owners.
Gordon Cormack – Administration
I am pleased to have recently been appointed to the administration role of the Hawkesbury Chamber of Commerce.
Throughout my working life I have performed a range of administrative tasks at various levels and I know the importance of having effective admin systems in place to help things run smoothly. The Administration role within the Chamber supports both the Executive and the members.
My link with the Hawkesbury District started in the mid 1970’s when I worked as a Clerk with the Department of Main Roads. I also spent many years working at the Hawkesbury Agricultural College (which became a University) where I carried out various roles working with staff and students.
I have lived in the district for nearly 20 years, and can see the huge potential for the area as Sydney’s north west continues to grow.
As a small business owner, I can relate to the challenges and demands of so many small to medium size businesses, and I look forward to getting to know, and support, members of the Chamber.
My interests include music, running, playing golf and home restoration.
