Kesh MantonDeputy President
Kesh Manton’s strong work ethic and passion for food was ignited growing up in the family catering business. After completing university, she undertook administrative roles with a large food business before enjoying a stint with a Federal Member of Parliament.
Post Graduate studies in Hospitality and Tourism led to hotel management roles, firstly in Cairns then back to Melbourne.
She moved to Ballarat to undertake Conferencing, Sales and Marketing roles at major venues before starting up her own business, MESH, as a Marketing and Events Specialist. This opened up opportunities to work with Kryal Castle, The George Hotel, Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival, Plate Up Ballarat, Eat Drink West and Peter Ford Catering.
Today Kesh can be found at Quest Ballarat Station working in Business Development.
I was invited to join the Wrisc Board by a previous member and felt that, after first getting to know the organisation through my voluntary work with the Fundraising Working Group, I could contribute to a real area of need. I am fortunate not to have experienced Family Violence myself, although I have a strong sense of the affect of it from my father’s childhood experiences and his mother’s enduring trauma from it.
