Australia’s peak body for small business has welcomed the appointment of Mark Brennan as the inaugural Federal Small Business Commissioner and believes the decision will boost confidence in the small business sector, says Business Enterprise Centres Australia (BECA) chairman Jack Hughes.

“Federal small business minister Brendan O’Connor has made another good decision in choosing Mr Brennan because he is a balanced and experienced candidate, with a proven track record of dealing with and understanding small business issues,” says Jack Hughes.

“The process of establishing this new role will involve navigating uncharted waters and we have every confidence that with Mr Brennan at the helm, the journey towards a fully functioning Office of the Small Business Commissioner will live up to expectations.
