Our Team

The Camden Haven Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee is a volunteer committee made up of leaders and business owners from the Camden Haven community.

Stuart Bate


Stuart Bate has a heart for community and a mind for business. He loves to challenge the status quo and ignite questions from the audience. Stuart’s manner is engaging. He describes himself as a simple person who loves surfing, nature, people and never wastes a moment.

Stuart’s career variety spans from the heart of Australia to England and Canada – spanning the sectors of real estate, hospitality, construction, IT, sales recruitment, and business processing outsourcing. He shifted to community services and worked with people who were long-term unemployed, recovering addicts, and ex-offenders.


Wayne Heilman

Vice President

Wayne Heilman began his career in real estate in Cowra in 1981. Not long after this, in 1983, the company he worked with joined the LJ Hooker family. An advantage Wayne has found being part of such a well-known brand, L.J Hooker, is the ability to combine local knowledge with an international pool of buyers and sellers.

Wayne covers all of the market place including residential homes, smaller hobby farms, from 5 to 100 acres, Commercial & Industrial properties, vacant land of all types including development property and Business sales.
