Until recently, Ellie was the owner-operator of a well-established multi-site/multi-discipline small business in regional NSW within the retail, event management, health and wellbeing, hospitality and industrial supply sectors. Currently Ellie maintains ownership of Ellie Brown Business Solutions, a business consulting company to small, medium and large businesses across many diverse industries.
Visionary in her approach, Ellie has developed the economic and social network in her region by driving membership and the profile of the NSW Business Chamber as well as reinvigorating the local Chambers to drive their membership through services offered by the NSW Business Chamber and to meet and understand their member expectations and needs. As a result of this work, Central West/Orana became a recognised region of the NSW Business Chamber.
Ellie was named in the Westpac and Financial Review; 100 Women of Influence awards Australia in 2014 and Orange Electorate Woman of the Year in 2011, for her work within the business community and her involvement with the Business Chamber.
