The Otago Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors
By David Shelton, OCCI Board of Directors, President | Posted: Sunday April 2, 2017
Welcome from President, David Shelton.
I am born, bred and educated in Dunedin. After graduating from Otago University with a Bachelor of Commerce I worked for Audit New Zealand (formerly the Audit Office) in Timaru and then in Christchurch.
I returned to Dunedin in 1995 and have worked as a Chartered Accountant for JW Smeaton ever since.
Dunedin is a great place to live and to bring up family. We are blessed with great schools and tertiary education. We have many cultural and sporting facilities that other cities are envious of. Compared to other cities we have affordable housing, little traffic congestion, and a low crime rate.
What our region needs is more people and more jobs. I want our region to be vibrant not only now but also for the future. I also want my children to have career choices based in Dunedin if they should choose.
