Life Member 2019

Glenn Creecy

Former owner of Around The Clock Pest Control and current partner of the Business Chamber Referral Group, helping businesses I would have to say is my passion. Being President of the Chamber on its 70th year in business and celebrate this milestone in style, would have to be the highlight of my 5 years as a director. Biggest achievements throughout this period were negotiating and forming Chamber Educational Partners with both Western Sydney University and TAFE NSW.

Life Member 2021

Tamlyn Van Zyst

Tamlyn is the longest servicing Director (8 years) being a very long time for anyone to volunteer and take away time from their own business. Tamlyn’s passion for helping businesses really showed when Glenn Creecy was President for 2 years and the help and assistance he received was next level. Further to this Tamlyn having chaired the board for the last 2 years through which would have to be the toughest period of the Chambers history (COVID-19 pandemic). Tamlyn’s contributions to not only our Chamber but to the wider business community throughout the years has been invaluable. As a Chamber, we thank her for her dedication, perseverance, and vision. We thank her immensely for serving on this board for 8 years and we wish her all the very best on her next endeavours. We are proud to name Tamlyn van Zyst, Life Member of the Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce.

Life Member 2022

Gerald Kenneally

Gerald has been a long-term member of our chamber, but most importantly has been our Returning officer for our AGM for a number of years. He has been an amazing asset to our Chamber as well as our Business Community as a whole. His outstanding charity work he does and the support he provides the homeless community in our region what more than reason enough to have Gerald made a Life Member of the Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce.

Life Member 2023
