JOINED PORT JACKSON PARTNERS IN 2002
Prior to joining Part Jackson Partners as a Director in 2002, Angus was a partner at McKinsey & Co. Throughout his consulting career Angus specialised in the resources, agriculture, energy and infrastructure sectors. Angus is currently serving as the Federal Member for Hume and the Minister for Energy in the Australian federal government.
At Port Jackson Partners, Angus authored reports as part of the ANZ Bank Insight series. The first of these, Earth, Fire Wind and Water – Economic Opportunity and the Australian Commodities Cycle, focused on the opportunities and challenges faced by Australia’s commodity exporters in the face of the slowing commodities sector, and was described as a “landmark report” by The Australian. The second report was Greener Pastures – The Soft Commodity Opportunity for Australia and New Zealand, exploring the opportunities available in the new Australian soft commodity boom.
In 2010 Angus appeared before the Australian Competition Tribunal as an expert economist in the high profile Pilbara rail access case, and in 2011 he appeared before the Senate Inquiry into the fertiliser industry. In his private capacity Angus also founded or advised a number of small, fast growing start-up businesses, mostly in the agriculture sector.
Angus left Port Jackson Partners in 2013 to enter the federal parliament.
