Kevin Cooper, Managing Director
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."
Ben Truscott, General Manager South
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's constantly "in training" and those in the Kwinana Beach area may have seen him running past their workplaces on his lunchbreak!
"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."
