was originally established in 1946 as ‘GJ Christie & Co’ during the early
post-war years. The founders, Gordon and Brian Christie, had the foresight to
establish a business designed to assist others with their own business affairs.
Many of Christies’ clients were, and still are, rural sector businesses
throughout Central and North-Western NSW.
As Dubbo grew from a town to a city,
Christies expanded, taking on more employees to meet the growing demands of
their clients. In 1949 at the age of 18, Ron Rich joined the firm under the
mentorship of founder Gordon Christie. In later years, Ron became the
proprietor, and in association with Ken McAnally, they were instrumental in
heading up the firm until the end of the century. Ron was a selfless community-minded
man, described as “Dubbo’s most respected citizen” by the mayor Tony McGrane in
the year of his death.
Christies is now owned and operated by
David Rich (son of Ron), David Chapman and Jeremy Dickson – three partners with
the continuing vision of providing trusted, lifelong quality client service.
