It is a case of deja vu for Danny Stent after he was elected as president of the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce at Wednesday’s annual general meeting.
This is Mr Stent’s second tilt at the top job after he completed a three-year term from 2002, before stepping down to spend time with his two young children.
The 48-year-old said he never lost interest in the chamber and, now his children had grown up, he was ready to lead the chamber into the post Justin Smith era.
“Justin has done a wonderful job (as president),” he said.
“Doing it for seven-and-a-half years is a colossal effort.”
Mr Stent, who works in wealth management for DJ Carmichael in Rockingham, said the new chamber executive had a strong combination of talent and experience.
Karen Court was elected vice president, Rebecca Taffe as secretary and Chris Depiazzi as treasurer.
Eleven new faces will make up the 16-person executive.
