Phil MacKay - President

I believe Cambridge is a great place to live, work, and do business. I am passionate about Cambridge, and I think the business community has a leadership role to play in ensuring our town remains the vibrant place it is today.

Success for the Chamber would mean a thriving business community supporting our growing town.

Success would be enabling and supporting a business environment that includes a strong foundation of existing business, ample new opportunities and room for growth.

To achieve this, Chamber needs strong governance, clear strategic direction and well-resourced operations. My drive as President is to ensure these things are in place so that our team can continue moving us toward this vision of success.

I am an Associate with Lewis Lawyers and have more than 20 years of legal experience.  

Since 1999 I have worked with the Lewis team in property and business transactions.  During this time, I have completed a Bachelor of Business Studies in Business Law from Massey University.  

Away from work, I am involved with Cambridge Repertory Society.

Originally from Germany, my kiwi partner Rod and I together with our two young children aged 8 and 6 settled in Cambridge in January 2014. I joined the Cambridge Chamber shortly after moving into town.

Topics that are close to my heart are sustainability and how we can do business and life in a more aware and sustainable way, growing our businesses in a genuine and integer way, supporting businesses who might not find support easily.
