LAURENCE GOODACRE

Territory Manager West Metals Australia - Orica

As a Territory Manager in the West Metals Region, Laurence is responsible for ensuring the safe and efficient delivery of explosives and services to over 20 customers in the West Metals Region. In his current capacity, overseeing an 80-million-dollar portfolio, Laurence’s responsibilities range from the commercial tendering and negotiation process, to the day to day operational and customer management.

By ensuring all members of his team have the ‘toolkit for success’ Laurence has been able to develop a strong culture of empowerment and working together to achieve a common goal within his team. This has ultimately led to the successful implementation of a number of safety and operational improvements.

Laurence began with Orica Mining services in 2008 and through his lengthy career with Orica has become an advocate for diversity. This was particularly evident throughout his time in Jakarta as Operations Manager and Mongolia as Country Manager, where in both roles Laurence was responsible for cross-functional management whilst ensuring cultural engagement and inclusion.

Laurence continues his commitment to self-improvement at home and when he is not at work, he is focussing on completing his MBA and his recreational pilot’s licence. To relax, you will find Laurence out for a walk with furry friend, Buddy (Groodle) or relaxing with a G&T at his family farm.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. pic.twitter.com/N7YxjyZ7Ys
