Biography

Ian Goodenough was elected to the Australian Parliament in 2013, representing the electorate of Moore in the House of Representatives.

As a local resident, he is perfectly placed to understand community and business needs. Ian is a very active individual who is friendly, approachable and above all effective in getting results. He is focused on achieving local priorities such as jobs, improved essential services, and new community facilities. Ian is passionate about economic development believing that Australian business owners should be able to do what they do best, create jobs and wealth for the nation with minimal government intervention.

With a small business background, Ian went into business starting with a small loan and over 15 years built his company into a leading supplier of electrical, mechanical and pipe supports systems to the commercial construction and mining industries. Pipe Supports Australia has made a lasting contribution to Western Australia by supplying iconic projects including the new Terminal 2 at Perth Airport, Graham Farmer Freeway Tunnel, Whitfords City & Lakeside Joondalup shopping centre expansions, and Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre. Ian also co-founded a commercial and residential property development company which recently completed a district shopping centre project at Currambine.

Ian’s practical business acumen is impressively backed up with professional qualifications including the executive development program at the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management, and a Senior Associate of the Financial Services Institute of Australasia.

In his first term Ian served as a member of the Speaker’s Panel in the House of Representatives. He was a member of the Parliamentary Committees on Electoral Matters, Procedure, Public Works, and Taxation & Revenue. In addition, Ian was involved with the Coalition Policy Committees on Indigenous Affairs, Industry, Trade and Investment.

Prior to entering Parliament, Ian was involved in the accounting, engineering, and property development industries. Ian has served as a local government councillor for 14 years. He is actively involved in our local community and is a Justice of the Peace. He was awarded the Commonwealth of Australia Centenary Medal for “service to local government, education, and charity”.

A first generation migrant, Ian is of Eurasian heritage – his ancestors were early pioneers who settled the British colony of Singapore. His electorate features a large proportion of overseas-born migrants many of whom can identify with Ian’s background.

As a member of the Coalition Industry, Trade and Investment policy committees Ian is actively working to develop export markets for Australian-made goods and services for the benefit of the economy capitalizing on recent trade partnerships with Korea, Japan and China.

Aside from his Parliamentary duties and obligations, Ian is a competitive shooter, nationally accredited shooting coach, recreational fisherman and car enthusiast.

Since becoming Prime Minister I have travelled to drought-affected communities, talking to farmers and engaging with communities. Our farmers and graziers are the best in the world. They are doing it tough, and we are on their side. That's why we passed the Future Drought Fund through the House last night, which will provide $5 billion in permanent funding support for drought resilience projects all around Australia.

Amazing to meet Scarlett and Anna with Katie Allen MP this morning to announce our Government will expand the PBS listing of the medicine Kalydeco for infants, helping children living with Cystic Fibrosis. It will save families up to $300,000 a year, taking it down to as little as $6.50 a script. Improving the lives of children like Scarlett and Anna are the inspiring reason we do our jobs as parliamentarians.

Our farmers are the best in the world despite years of drought and hardship. That’s why today at the Daily Telegraph’s Bush Summit in Dubbo, I announced that our Government is committed to take our agricultural sector to a $100 billion industry by 2030.
