Harvey Norman Parkes
This October marks my 10 year anniversary at Harvey Norman. I started in the Dubbo furniture warehouse as a casual and worked my way up the ranks working in every department as a sales- person. Over the years I developed a passion for fitting out peoples’ homes and meeting new people along the way. I took over the Parkes Franchise in Au- gust 2017 and am now proud to be a part of the community helping on the Pink up Parkes committee this month. Congrats to all the Local Henrys Finalists. I’m very proud to be a finalist for the Young Entrepreneur Award

Burns Precision Ag
Burns Precision Ag is a family operated business which started out focusing on Precision Ag solutions to help landowners become more efficient. We recognised a gap in the market for affordable security solutions for remote areas. There was already Solar CCTV on the world market but there wasn’t a system that was both affordable and practical for rural Australia. We designed and tested our own prototypes over 12 months. The end result was a tough, reliable solar CCTV system capable of handling hot, cold and windy conditions. We offer eight unique models with customisable options to suit each camera location.
Kerin Physio Co
Kerin Physio Co is a diverse team of allied health professionals, who are passionate about delivering high quality health care to our rural communities.
We offer a full range of healthcare services, and have clinics scattered around the Central West (with Parkes as our central hub and office) or our fabulous therapists can meet you in your home, gym, the pool or office – wherever suits you!
We are thrilled to be a finalist for The Henry’s this year and look forward to a fun night out, and we’d also like to wish all the very best to the other participants.
