Youngest participant to win the award in the new business category

A UOW student with an entrepreneurial mindset has won an award at the 2020 Illawarra and South Coast Local Business Awards (ISLBA).

Darcy McKenna, who is currently in the final year of a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in management and marketing, is the youngest participant to receive the prestigious ISLBA award in the new business category.

Darcy started his business, Biz Sites, with his best friend and business partner, Jye Turner, in 2019 with a vision to serve the ever-growing digital marketing needs of businesses.

His company took away the award after facing tough competition from 18 other local businesses in the New Business category.

“Jye and I launched Biz Sites in May last year, as a website agency. As we started to grow, there was a demand for a range of digital services. So we quickly became a full-service Digital Marketing Agency. We’re continually growing and innovating our services. From websites to social media advertising, and now finishing off the development for our first Mobile App,” Darcy said.

“We are so grateful for this award, and it felt extra special that we were the youngest ones to have won this award.”

Biz Sites was also a finalist for excellence in digital service delivery at the Illawarra Business Chamber Awards announced last month.
