Breakfast with Derek Charge

On the 24th of May, join us to hear from Hellyers Road Distillery’s Managing Director & CEO Derek Charge. Derek has experience across a diverse range of industries. He is a commercial lawyer and former partner of a national law firm, but has spent much of his career in senior executive management roles in major listed companies in Australia and New Zealand. He has accrued strong business experience throughout Asia and over a decade’s experience as director of a broad variety of organisations, including listed multinational robotics and automation company Scott Technology Limited. His tertiary education was in physics, chemistry, microbiology and viticulture. Derek has been a Director of Whisky Tasmania since August 2021 and Managing Director and CEO since September 2022.

Whisky Tasmania Limited is well known to the business community of the North West Coast – first as Betta Milk, then, since the sale of the milk business in 2019, as Whisky Tasmania Limited focussing exclusively on Hellyers Road Distillery. For the first time in its 67 year history, Whisky Tasmania is offering the opportunity for investors beyond the families of the original founders to subscribe for shares. As a proud North West Coast company, Whisky Tasmania especially wants to encourage investment from sophisticated and professional investors in the local community. If you’d like further details, please contact Managing Director Derek Charge or CFO Ken Clarke. The share offer is due to close on Friday 26th May 2023.
