Lachlan, or Lachy, is homegrown talent when it comes to business. After school, like many he moved away to study but he soon realised that being close to his family and support network was a priority in life.
Lachy kept up his studies part time while working for Coastline. With a knack for business and building relationships, before even graduating Lachy was the Business Development Manager for the Macleay Valley. In addition to this Lachy is an executive on the Macleay Valley Business Chamber and has done exceptional work for the Macleay Valley Business Awards.
At the end of 2021, Lachy completed his studies with a Bachelor of Business from Southern Cross University, and he took up an exciting opportunity with Macleay Valley Support Services as their HR Director. In his first year he went from managing 60 to 90 staff.
