With more than two decades of experience, Mr Evans, who is also a trained heavy duty mechanic, has been able to take on several roles.

‘I have worked in the maritime industry for the past 22 years, including a two-year stint with the International Workers Federation (ITF) where my role was primarily focused on the welfare of seafarers from developing nations,’ he said.

‘I have been the deputy secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia for the past four years.

‘I represented workers in negotiations with employers and I fought hard for a safe workplace as going home in the same condition as you started is a fundamental right.

‘I feel that my time at the MUA will hold me in good stead for the challenges ahead.’

Mr Evans, who has been married to his sweetheart Vanessa for 14 years, and with whom he raises his two daughters, also stands up for violence against women.

‘I am also a White Ribbon Ambassador as I believe that more needs to be done to stop violence against women in the local community,’ he said.

But Mr Evans isn’t always about business, playing football and golf in his downtime.

He said his connection to Hasluck dated back to 1953 when his grandad and nan emigrated from the UK and moved into Maddington.

‘Many of my family members still live there,’ he said.

‘I am 100 per cent focused on providing Hasluck with a strong representative that will listen and work hard to deliver for the community.’
