David McClelland has been awarded the 2020 annual Kevin Faulks Award by Wyong Regional Chamber of Commerce, in recognition of his many years of service and individual contribution to the business community.

McClelland, of Bishop Collins Chartered Accountants, have been members of the Chamber since 1996, and he has worked closely with the Chamber Board over many years advocating to develop and improve the local business community and in turn the local economy.

For more than 10 years, along with his team, McClelland has overseen the annual audit of the Chamber.

Personally, McClelland also has many years of service to not-for-profit organisations on the Central Coast and NSW, including Rotary and the University of Newcastle.

Chamber President, Matthew Lusted, said David McClelland’s contribution to the Chamber and the Northern Growth Corridor’s Business Community has been outstanding.

“His leadership in business and the wider community has seen Bishop Collins Chartered Accountants flourish as a local business, and the organisations that use their service also continue to thrive as they follow his lead in giving back locally,” Lusted said.

McClelland was presented with the 2020 Kevin Faulks Award at the Chamber’s September Breakfast meeting by the Chamber Board and Past President, Kevin Gregory

“On behalf of our members we thank him for his many years’ of service and we wish him well in his retirement,” Gregory said.
