About Us

Our Committee

Business Singleton represents the business community within the Singleton area in the Upper Hunter Region, NSW. An elected committee meets formally once a month to manage Business Singleton matters and initiatives.

Business Singleton holds an alliance with Business NSW, which provides additional benefits to our members. We encourage and foster close relationships with other local industry bodies such as Business Hunter, Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue, Hunter Defence, Broke Fordwich Tourism Association, Around Hermitage, Muswellbrook Chamber of Commerce.

We initiate informative seminars and networking events. These events allow interaction with other local business owners and often feature guest speakers in areas such as leadership, business development, marketing, motivation and WHS, which help support and encourage our members in business.

Vice President

Anita White

I have over 20 years of comprehensive business management expertise in financial, risk management, export market, HR and disability services.

As CEO at Witmore, I have overseen the expansion of services to include a 24/7 supported respite house, introduced a supported holiday program, and expanded our thriving social enterprises into more diverse areas by opening a café/kiosk and soon a restaurant.

I have a strong passion for the Hunter Valley, especially Singleton. My commitment to Singleton is over a long period, seeing me volunteer in local community groups. I firmly believe that Singletonians and local business owners hold the power and direction of industry diversification in our town.

I have been a Singleton Rotary Club member for over fifteen years, holding club and district board positions. I am the chairperson of the Lake St Clair Charity Bike Ride, held in August each year and funds raised are distributed to local projects within our community.

I am married to Neil, and I have eight grandchildren from our three sons and wives. When not spending as much time as possible with the grandkids, I am passionate about AFL and my beloved Sydney Swans, being active outdoors and walking my ADHD German Shepherd, Bubbles.
