My name is Ben Dahlstrom and I am the new CEO at MPA Skills.
I have a passion for education and training and enjoy working with others to achieve positive outcomes for people.
I have had quite a varied career in the past 10 – 15 years, in Australia and Europe; I have been a journalist in the UK, a media advisor in federal politics, a GM / Director of Marketing at a high-fee private school and for one of WA’s biggest NFPs, but also spent time watering plants and being a brick paver’s labourer!
During this time I studied and completed two Masters’ Degrees, one of which was an MBA, but I am most proud of my family and being a parent with my wife Melanie of two daughters Ava (9) and Sophie (7).
I am looking forward to working with our entire staff group, the Board and our stakeholders on making MPA Skills the best it possibly can be.
