Ben Killigrew


Chief Operations Officer

Ben began his career in agriculture and viticulture, gaining a doctorate in viticultural pathology before realising that the career prospects were brighter in land development and project management during WA’s mining boom.

He worked for LandCorp as Pilbara Regional Manager when the Pilbara was feeling the pressure of investment from vast mining projects and went on to work in regional development related roles at UWA and KPMG before being asked to become chief of staff to the Minister for Housing, Racing and Gaming (including Liquor) in the former government.

Ben is a keen exercise fanatic and likes to stair climb, surf and spearfish when he isn’t trawling through asset management plans and committee agendas at the Town!
