Event overview

Business leaders have called upon Canberra for long term policy making to improve business confidence during the federal election year.

Successful infrastructure delivery, productivity, cost control and value-add in a competitive Asia Pacific region, will be the hallmarks of success.

In 2013, CEDA continues the successful CEO Vision Series, inviting to the platform Australian leaders whose vision brings together the organisation's vision and future in a global environment.

Join CEDA for the opening session with Lance Hockridge, Managing Director & CEO, Aurizon.

With a recognised and distinguished career in mining and transport sectors, Lance will examine issues determining the future of the resource sector over the next decade, including:

  • Long-term investment in the resource sector;
  • Efficient supply chains; and
  • Taxes, red tape and regulatory settings.

Meet the speaker

Lance Hockridge
Managing Director & CEO
Aurizon

Lance became Managing Director & CEO of Aurizon in July 2010 to lead the company through what would be the largest Initial Public Offering (IPO) in Australia in a decade. He has guided the transition to private ownership and Aurizon's listing as a top 50 ASX company after 145 years as a government-owned and operated railway.

Lance joined QR Limited (now Aurizon) as Chief Executive Officer in 2007 with extensive experience in the transportation and heavy industrial sectors in Australia and the United States.

During a 30 year career with The Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited (now BHP Billiton Limited), and BlueScope Steel, he was a member of the leadership team that led to BlueScope Steel's successful demerger from BHP and the creation of a new publicly listed company.

In 2005, Lance was appointed President of BlueScope Steel's North American operations where he led a major turnaround in safety, production and financial performance. Other roles at BHP included Human Resources and Industrial Relations, General Manager of BHP Transport, Head of Long Products Business and President of Industrial Markets.
