New Name, Same Goals

Updated: Jul 8

✦ Meet Katherine Harris, Executive Officer for Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce, who are now trading as Business Port Macquarie


Having been with Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce for over eleven years and having efficiently supported four consecutive Executive Officer’s, Katherine’s skill and knowledge have been essential to keeping the administration and Chamber events running smoothly.


With the recent resignation of Mark Wilson, it was time for Katherine to take a step up into the EO role and use her experience to take on the top job.


Many of you will know Katherine as the first point of contact when calling the office and she is impressively humble about her past experience and achievements.


Her background


Katherine was a Senior Executive Assistant, working in the international corporate finance and investment banking sectors for Global Directors in both London for seven years and Sydney for many more. Her experience gained over the last 20-plus years ensures her eye for detail, highly professional manner and an ability to work calmly under pressure. She is an achiever who wins respect, inspires trust and builds strong rapport with both management and colleagues.


Out of the office Katherine is mum to teenager Jack and their cavoodle Rosie. She can often be found walking with them both on Lighthouse beach, her happy place.


Katherine is very excited about stepping into his new role, having remained behind the scenes for the last eleven years. With the rebrand from Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce to Business Port Macquarie from 1 July 2002, it is a great opportunity to modernise and move forward.


She looks forward to working with the new President, Alex Glen-Holmes, to help engage members and the business community and to provide quality events and support as needed. Katherine says, “It is a new and exciting challenge and I am looking forward to being more involved with our wonderful business community under our new brand of Business Port Macquarie.”

Same service, events and advocacy - just new logo in-line with the National and State Chambers which are now called Business Australia and Business NSW.


Each member of Business Port Macquarie is also a member of the State Chamber (Business NSW) with all the benefits entailed, so it was decided as a Chamber to align with the brand... it is all about relevancy for their business community.


Katherine told Brilliant-online, “A lot of people traditionally connected the Chamber with the Council and didn't really know what we did... so it is a good time for change!


"Business Port Macquarie made so much more sense. We are here for business, for the future and to increase our demographic membership.”
