He is a "quiet, unassuming gentleman who always puts his community first" and as a result, Rob Pearce has been named Canowindra's Citizen of the Year.

Mr Pearce moved to Canowindra for a "tree change" having retired as a partner of Price Waterhouse in Sydney.

Since his arrival, Mr Pearce has volunteered his excellent financial skills and knowledge to numerous organisations in Canowindra since the early 90s.

All of his volunteering has been for free and additional advice offered or researched to ensure the best possible outcome.

Mr Pearce was Treasurer of Marti's Balloon Fiesta for three years.

For the past seven years, he has played a key role through his financial expertise with the Canowindra Baroquefest.

Mr Pearce has been Secretary/Treasurer of the Rural Fire Service for 20 years and for 17 years, he has volunteered at the Age Of Fishes Museum.

He also donates his time and expertise with the Canowindra Golf Club.

"Rob is honest, reliable and trust worthy," Councillor Jenny Weaver said at the Australia Day ceremony.

"He is punctual, hardworking and generous of spirit.

"Rob is a quiet, unassuming gentleman who always puts his community first."

More to come.
