On 21 December 2011, David Eaton was appointed as the first Small Business Commissioner for Western Australia. The Commissioner is also the Chief Executive Officer of the Small Business Development Corporation and David Eaton started this role on 17 January 2012.
In 2010, the Western Australian Government decided to establish a Small Business Commissioner.
During 2010-11, the necessary amendments to the Small Business Development Corporation Act 1983, the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 and the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004 were passed through both houses of State Parliament, thereby allowing the establishment of the Small Business Commissioner.
The Small Business Development Corporation is an independent statutory authority, and has been the primary provider of advice and guidance for the small business sector in Western Australia since 1984. Learn more about SBDC’s:
