With operations in many different industries, including retail, chemicals, and coal production and exports, Wesfarmers Ltd. is an economic force within Australia. The company is always looking for advisors and economic experts to help it satisfy its 500,000 shareholders and continue to provide jobs and economic stimulus to the country.

Andrew Charlton came to work for Wesfarmers Ltd. in 2010 after spending two years as Australia’s senior economic representative to the G20 Leaders Forum and after working as former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s Senior Economic Advisor. Charlton has served Wesfarmers Ltd. in various capacities, lending his economic expertise to the leadership’s decisions over the past five years.
