THE governor of Western Australia, Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, was the guest of honour at a sundowner event organised by the WA chapter of the Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA).
Her Excellency, who was CEO of Fremantle Ports from 1991 to 2008, spoke about aspects of her current role, since being appointed WA’s first female governor in 2014.
In welcoming Her Excellency, members and other guests, WISTA WA vice-president Ella Cahtarevic (of MSC) said the governor had a key role in seeing WISTA established in Western Australia four years ago.
“We’re delighted that she has continued to take a close interest in WISTA’s activities,” Ms Cahtarevic said.
This event was hosted by the Mediterranean Shipping Company, a long-standing supporter of WISTA Australia and held at the company’s regional headquarters in Fremantle.
WISTA Australia supporters in Western Australia include MSC, Fremantle Ports and Lavan.
