RACHEL Ramoifuila has been appointed a new board member of Sasape International Shipyard Limited (SISL) on Monday this week.

It followed her recent appointment as manager of the newly established ship yard at Tulagi in Central Province.

Silentworld Company chairman Glenn Bennett made the announcement this week.

“This is great news for Solomon Islands and for women in the country to be recognised for their hard work and commitment,” Mr Bennett said.

“The company is pleased to appoint Rachel as a board member.

“This is an indication of trust and confidence in women to take up such leadership roles within the company,” Mr Bennett said.

He added that Silentworld and Solomon Islands National Provident Fund acknowledged and confirmed Ms Ramoifuila’s new appointment as a board member of SISL.

Mr Bennett said the company is very proud of the achievement of Rachel and hope other women can also take pride of this and work hard to do the same in their walks of life.

He said Silentworld is a promoter of equal gender opportunities in the workplace and will continue to support women to realise their potentials.
