Chris has more than two decades experience in policy development and advocacy, senior government positions, not-for-profit and industry associations, business and the delivery of major government reforms and programs.

Most recently he has been the General Manager for Capital Projects and Infrastructure with the City of Melbourne where he oversaw the delivery of the capital works program.

As the NSW Small Business Commissioner, Chris will advocate for small businesses across the State and help resolve issues impacting on them. A key part of his role in the months ahead will be leading the NSW Small Business Commission as it helps small businesses overcome the many challenges they face in this period of COVID-19. 

Chris Lamont takes over as the NSW Small Business Commissioner from Robyn Hobbs, who stepped down from the position at the end of 2019. From her appointment in 2014, Robyn was a passionate advocate for small business. Her leadership in providing advocacy, dispute resolution and business support services across NSW, helped cement the state as the best place in Australia to start and grow a business.
