Roby Hobbs takes up top job

Ms Robyn Hobbs OAM, formerly manager, executive support at Parramatta City Council, has been appointed as the new NSW Small Business Commissioner, for a five-year term beginning in the role on February 25, 2014.

Ms Hobbs founded Carols in the Domain in 1983 and previously worked with the Sydney Opera House and the City of Sydney.

Following the passage of legislation through the NSW Parliament last year, the role was established as an independent statutory officer and the NSW Government began a competitive process to select a Small Business Commissioner.

Ms Hobbs said she is thrilled to have been appointed to the role.

“This is a wonderful opportunity and I am excited to contribute to the growth of small businesses in NSW,” Ms Hobbs said.

“The review of the Retail Leases Act will be one of my immediate challenges, but I look forward to working hard to identify and advise the NSW Government on ways it can reduce the regulatory burden on small business”
