BUSINESSMAN Wesley Sim has taken over as the new Rotary Club of Perth president.
Mr Sim moved to Perth from Singapore 30 years ago, and lives in Mt Claremont with his wife and two children.
“I have a great interest in community activities, and joined Rotary 18 years ago because of the amazing range of projects they initiate both here and overseas – in particular, the work they do to help Perth’s homeless and victims of domestic violence,” he said.
Mr Sim said during his term as president he wanted to grow club membership and attract more people from the Asian community.
“Many of our overseas projects are focused in Asia but we don’t have a lot of active members from that region,” he said.
The Rotary president will soon speak to the WA Chinese Chamber of Commerce on ‘What Rotary is All About’.
Mr Sim took over the club presidency from businessman Stephen Inouye.
