Sandra Holebrook

President, Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce

Diversity has been a major factor in my career of 30 years and whilst I didn’t originally seek it out, I realised that learning about new things was a key driver of my passion to succeed, so I grasped opportunities to diversify my business experience wherever they arose. That diversification philosophy has seen my career move from accounting to managing retail, distribution, wholesaling and manufacturing businesses, and providing consultancy and business development services to organisations. I am passionate about supporting and achieving economic growth on the Fraser Coast and seeing businesses in the region prosper. Judging for the Fraser Coast Business and Tourism Awards is both a privilege and an honour and I look forward each year to seeing what greatness and diversity in business is in our own backyard.
