International Business Consultant
Ray has spent 30 years working in a variety of international trade and export positions in Australia and overseas. His core experience ranges from policy and strategic development, business planning for expansion, project management and stakeholder management. This has allowed Ray to create an extensive network across all levels of government in Australia and internationally.
Speaking English, Arabic and French, Ray has spent significant years helping Queensland businesses to attract investment and trade development from the Middle East for the food and agribusiness sector. This included private sector companies in beef, live cattle and horticultural products. His focus was around small but robust businesses that hold high potential. Also in government, Ray led the Department of Transport and Main Roads, Trade and International Relations Unit to win international business for Australian businesses in this sector.
In the private sector, Ray has developed great experience in business development roles in Australia and overseas. His strategic planning for export growth has seen many businesses expand profitably and capitalise on the opportunities overseas markets bring.
Ray’s unique focus on the agribusiness and sustainable technologies sectors stems from an interest in Queensland’s unique growth opportunities. He considers the impact of well-crafted trade and international relations integral to Australia’s future prosperity.
Ray works with Langano clients to develop trade and export plans while providing practical guidance on the implementation of plans and stakeholder management. His network helps Langano clients to reach the right people in the positions to make the most of international opportunities and develop Australian businesses.
