Bob Every, Chairman, Wesfarmers, 2 June 2009

Non Executive Directors

Bob Every addressed a private Boardroom lunch for 20 senior business leaders where he discussed "Wesfarmers' acquisition of Coles". This event was proudly hosted by Russell Reynolds Associates.

Wesfarmers acquired Coles Group Limited for $20 billion in November 2007, making the Western Australian-based conglomerate Australia's biggest private-sector employer with annual revenues of more than $45 billion.  However, the world has changed dramatically since then!

Bob Every, who joined the Board of Wesfarmers in February 2006 and was appointed Chairman in 2008, will discuss the acquisition of Coles and the challenges and opportunities it has brought.

Bob is a Director of Boral Limited and Chairman of Iluka Resources Limited.  Other positions previously held by Bob include Managing Director of Tubemakers of Australia Limited, President of BHP Steel and Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of OneSteel Limited, a position from which he retired in May 2005.
