Microenterprise Development Manager | Alice Springs
Lester is from a small business background, having been a partner in his families’ irrigated cropping farm at Goondiwindi in Qld. He also operated a Bed and Breakfast business on the farm.
Lester left the farm and travelled to the Northern Territory in 1998 to take up a position managing the dairy farm at Katherine. With a desire to be his own boss again he moved with his family in 2000 to open the Brumbys bakery in Alice Springs. After 19 years he sold this successful business and took up a role managing the National Transport Museum in Alice Springs for 18 months. Lester is extremely motivated to give back and help others. Many Rivers will allow me to share the skills he has learnt throughout his journey with those beginning out in business and he is extremely excited about this opportunity
He enjoys being a part of the local community here in Alice Springs and helping out where he can. He also enjoys many sports including motorbike, mountain bike and golf.
