I’m Hamish Walker and I’m a very passionate advocate for the business community. I am standing for the Chamber Board for a second term because I love Queenstown and believe a healthy community is only possible with a thriving business community. I see the Chamber as an important organisation which helps businesses thrive by ensuring businesses are represented loud and clear.

Over the past two years I have advocated for different businesses on the Chamber Board because I believe that is the role the Board Members are elected to do. Over the past several months I have been building a real estate business called Premium Real Estate which I launched in April this year.   I have excellent networks and relationships within Local and Central Government, and key stakeholder groups.  I previously served the community for a number of years in many roles including a board director on the Otago Rugby Union, member of the Otago/Southland Lotteries Committee and as a Member of Parliament for this area. I have been a successful business owner and have worked in the banking, accounting, and real estate industries. I have a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting.

May I respectfully ask for your vote for the Chamber Board.
