Originally living in Newcastle with her young family, Ms English, along with her husband and two young children, moved permanently to the Upper Hunter in January 2020. ‘2020 was an interesting year to be a newcomer. I feel very privileged to be given this opportunity in the current economic climate and hope that I can be a great support to local businesses and The Chamber‘– Ms English says. 

With a strong Marketing and Communications background, Ms English holds a Businesses Degree in Marketing and over 10 years of working experience in varied Marketing and Specialist positions. Sarah understands the needs and challenges of small business owners in the region, which she believes is bound to be of great value to Chamber Members. 

‘Along with Sarah’s obvious wealth of experience and skills, her generous nature and enthusiasm for community was one of many reasons Scone Chamber knew she was going to be a great fit for the organisation. It will be wonderful to have someone highly capable on the ground helping to execute the Board’s vision and connect with Members. I think the Members are going to really like her too’.  Steve Guihot, Scone Chamber President.
