Max Benyon & Jim Pereth (R) Governor Phillip Tower 2022

It is with a heavy heart that I write about the passing of James (Jim) Pereth.

Jim was instrumental during our original mast installation at Governor Philip Tower.

His involvement as principal worker and designer of the mode of work was crucial and he again was the on-site supervisor of the very difficult dismantling of the mast late last year.

Jim was a master of his craft, in that he could personally lead his team after devising the safe preparation of highly specialised lifting and assembly of a multi-section mast and complex antenna system for our community radio station in the CBD of Sydney in 1996/7.

Jim was a respected leader of his team and his longevity in his field confirms the expertise he developed and his high reputation again showed when his team, from Powerfone, completed the deconstruction and removal of our antenna and mast to meet a critical deadline for us by the end of 2022.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude for his outstanding career and as a valued friend of our radio station and convey our sincere sympathies to his family and friends.
