Kevin started Sea Containers WA in 2008, having spent 20 years working in the shipping industry, both in Australia and overseas. His last role was as Country Manager for MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) working out of Christchurch, New Zealand, where he and his family developed many friendships and a deep love for the country.
Kevin has spent his entire career in the wider shipping, container and logistics industries, and that experience has helped him grow Sea Containers WA into one of the most respected providers of shipping containers, modified units and storage solutions in Western Australia.
In his downtime, Kevin enjoys Stand Up Paddle Boarding, spending time with his family at their holiday house and riding his bike!
Being a keen cyclist, he can be found riding the roads around Perth in the early hours of the morning, generally in training for an annual overseas event. He has tackled the Around Lake Taupo 160km Cycle Challenge for the last five years running, generally combining the trip with a visit to the office of Sea Containers NZ, which he established in 2010, with ex MSC New Zealand colleague, Haddon Lock.
” I’ve enjoyed trying to create an environment where people like to come to work (as much as one can!), enjoy the day to day challenge that leads to our company vision and be surrounded by a great team of colleagues that like to have fun. On a personal front, I believe a positive attitude is critical coupled with a strong focus on work/life balance.”
General Manager Operations
Ben joined Sea Containers WA in 2012, coming to the team with over 12 years of experience in the shipping industry. Ben has held both commercial and operational positions with Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Patrick Stevedores in Fremantle.
Ben enjoys watching his fellow employees set and achieve challenging objectives. He has a passion for Ironman Triathlons, he believes a good work / life balance makes for a more productive and high achieving employee.
” I believe one of the keys to working in a successful business is to surround yourself with great people; we are lucky to have the team we have. Each person within our business is highly skilled and highly motivated towards delivering great customer service. I am always excited about the next phase of business for Sea Containers WA.”
General Manager Sales
Leaving the shores of the Emerald Isle in 2012, Michael set his sights on Perth and within a week of landing he found his new industry, Container hire and sales.
Michael joined Sea Containers WA in early 2017 and it feels like he has been here forever!
He has 6 years experience in the industry and boasts broad experience and knowledge in the oil and gas sector, we knew he would be a great addition to the team.
You may catch Michael running around Perth, or cycling with our MD Kevin; Kevin got him involved in a 400km charity cycle within a month of starting with us…not sure Michael was expecting THAT when he signed up.
” I enjoy getting up in the morning with a determined attitude of what I wish to achieve that day, be it bringing some laughter to the office, offering guidance to my colleagues or providing a solution for a client. The focus and hard work within our staff is a huge inspiration to bring the ‘best you’ to work every day. “
