Colin Lenton, NBMLHD Board Member

Colin Lenton comes from a diverse and dynamic professional background - having worked in both accounting and hospitality.

After spending his formative years proudly attending local public schools in the Sutherland Shire, Colin began his professional life in Sydney chartered accountancy firms, studying accounting part-time on the side. He also worked as a Director of the Family First Credit Union where professional development in the mutual sector occupied him during the first six years.

The early 1990’s saw Colin’s professional focus shift to the hospitality industry. Initially Colin served as a hotel owner/manager and he now works as the current owner/operator of popular tourist attraction Blue Mountains Manor House alongside his wife of 34 years, Annette.

The Blue Mountains local also maintains a keen - yet broad - interest in Boards and Committees having held places on everything from Blue Mountains Tourism to the Blue Mountains Youth Accommodation Support Service. In recent years, Colin has also been invited to Chair and assist in the formation of an educational facility in the city for which he already consults as a process analyst.

Community contribution - in addition to the busy pair’s already extensive inventory of extracurricular activities - has also always been an integral part of Colin and Annette’s lives. Beginning with P&C’s, they include the establishment of a public childcare centre, community association, historical society and pacific micro-banking training and forum in which they have held various positions over the years and continue to do so.

Colin and Annette have three children who have all graduated from Charles Sturt University and are currently successfully employed in their chosen fields.
