New chamber officer

Docklands Chamber of Commerce has appointed a new executive officer.

Shane Wylie returned to Docklands in December, after having worked as a CEO and executive officer overseas, and is now ready to take on the task at hand.  

“My aim is to continue the evolution of the Docklands. It is such a beautiful, cosmopolitan area with a bright future ahead. I want to be part of helping the entrepreneurism of the Docklands as it moves forward,” Mr Wylie told Docklands News.

This is not the first time Mr Wylie has lived in Docklands. Before leaving Melbourne to move overseas, he was a resident for 10 years.

“The best part of the area is that it is so close to the CBD, but yet it offers something that no other part of Melbourne does,” he said.

“I don’t have to travel anywhere to accomplish something, because all I need is right here.”

“There is the social aspect, the business aspect and all the events that are on. If I need to get into the city due to work, I can get there with a five minute walk,” he continued.

Before taking on the role as the chamber’s executive officer, Mr Wylie has an impressive track record. He says he started university in Queensland at the age of 15 and finished his first degree at 18. Shortly afterwards, at the age of 21, he received his masters.

In addition to his academic excellence, Mr Wylie has represented Australia overseas in both athletics, as a javelin thrower and in golf. He still plays golf around six to 10 times a year when his schedule allows.

“Although I have no previous experience working in a chamber of commerce, my experience as a CEO and executive officer in other businesses have allowed me to develop a skill-set that is beneficial for this role,” Mr. Wylie explained.

“When representing businesses, I had to meet new people and instantly build a connection. In addition to this, I have experience in building networks with influential organisations and leading business development. These are all skills I am sure will benefit me as the new executive officer,” he continued.

There is no doubt that Mr Wylie will represent the Docklands Chamber of Commerce with a wide range of important skills to help promote the Docklands.

“It is great working here in Docklands, as the people here are very open. They accept entrepreneurial ideas straight away and this is a part of what I am looking forward to working with; an area where new ideas and open-minded people can come together,” he concluded.
