2019 Macleay Valley Business Awards Gala Dinner

The 2019 Macleay Valley Business Awards presented by Coastline Credit Union is officially done and dusted, with many local businesses achieving great success on the night!

Saturday night saw business owners from across the Shire converge on South West Rocks Country Club for the annual Gala Dinner and awards presentation. 25 awards across two categories were handed out to businesses receiving recognition for their contribution to the community and business in the Macleay.

We are especially proud of our Macleay Valley Business Lending Specialist Lachy Townsend for achieving the NSW Business Chamber Aligned Award Outstanding Young Employee Award at this year’s event. Lachy has been with Coastline for over 2 years, starting out as a Member Service Advisor and progressed to where he is now as Business Lending Specialist for our Macleay Valley Branches. Lachy’s drive to succeed and enthusiasm towards Coastline was clear in his application, with one of the judges referencing to Lachy as a “future industry leader”.
