Cliff Lyons is a Director and major shareholder of Bennelong Energy Services.


As a proud indigenous sporting figure, Cliff has carved out an amazing career as a former professional rugby league player playing 332 games in the NRL and six test matches for Australia.


One of the most talented players in the NRL, Cliff played most of his rugby league on the Northern Beaches playing for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. Cliff was also named in the Indigenous rugby league team of the century.


As one of the BES directors, Cliff and his co – directors have been heavily involved in the nurturing of indigenous and pacific islander rugby league players, whether it be coaching or mentoring these  young players through the ranks.


When sitting down to discuss the formation of Bennelong Energy Services, it became clear that Cliff and the co – directors wanted to go that extra mile and build a career path for young indigenous rugby league players. Like any budding young player who is striving to sign a contract in the NRL it’s only a small percentage that go on to make a career in rugby league, hence the reason why we wanted to make sure some of these boys had the opportunity to still become successful in business by completing an electrical trade or becoming a qualified fire technician. As a group we wanted to make sure that young indigenous men didn’t lose hope of becoming successful in whichever path they tackled.   Gaven Sheehan and Steve Freeman who are currently the directors of Corporate Energy Services which is a successful electrical/fire business that manages contracts Australia wide, created BES with the support from Cliff by bringing the same operational and work ethic to Bennelong Energy Services. The support from CES to BES will be essential in making these boys a success in giving them the mentoring from Cliff, support technically from Steve and the work opportunities from Gaven. BES envisage a future of proud young men who will be proud of their  achievements working for Bennelong Energy Fire Services.
