Carrick brings with him extensive Brand Development experience after spending 10 years with international surf/action sport labels prior to Chamber.
If you need a tour of the Albury-Wodonga businesses landscape, or the current economic climate, Carrick is your guide! If you have a challenge in your business or industry, or an idea that the world needs to know, or you just want to share a ‘dad joke’ with him – he’s your guy.
Michael Bocquet - Membership Engagement
Michael is a born and bred Albury-ian and has deep roots to business in Albury. His grandfather owned an air conditioning and refrigeration business for over 30 years and his parents operated a café on Olive St in the early 2000’s. Michael’s background in telecommunications and local sporting organisations has given him an insight to the local market and what makes business tick, and a knack for technology.
To help feed his thirst for knowledge, Michael is currently working on completing his bachelor’s degree in business. You might also see Michael running around on the weekend as an umpire in the local Australian Football Leagues, something he’s enjoyed doing for 10 years!
Gabby Bourke - Business Development (Marketing)
Gabby comes to the Chamber as a new resident of Albury, bringing a fresh set of eyes to business in the area.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Gabby has a background in digital marketing for small businesses, focusing on giving them a consistent voice on and offline. Under the AlburyCBD banner, she is here to help businesses build and maintain strong customer relations, while also helping businesses work collaboratively to boost Albury as a whole.
Gabby is always eager to learn more about her new home, and sample every coffee in town, so be sure to send your local Albury knowledge her way!
Rachel Croker - Business Support
Rachel is a young and passionate Lavi local who joins us in the position of Business Support, so if you have any enquiries about booking ChamberHub, upcoming events, or booking some ads in the Shout Out, she’s your girl.
Rachel has a bachelor’s degree in Policy from the Australian National University and says that nothing has made her appreciate Albury more than living in Canberra for three years.
