Malcolm Turnbull’s career spans journalism, law, business and politics. After growing up in Australia, Malcolm studied at Sydney University and attended Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship. He returned to Australia to practice law and then established an investment banking firm in 1987 and during that time specialized in the media and technology sectors. He co-founded the first big Australian Internet company, OzEmail Ltd, listing it on the NASDAQ in 1996 and selling it to Worldcom three years later.
Malcolm joined Goldman Sachs in 1997 becoming a partner of the firm the following year and headed
their Australian business for four years until he retired to pursue a political career. He entered the House of Representatives in 2004 and served as Minister for the Environment and Water Resources and Minister for Communications; finally, he served as Prime Minister from 2015 to 2018.
During his time as Prime Minister, Malcolm delivered strong economic growth, record jobs growth and
at the same time reduced both corporate and personal income taxes. His Government legalized same sex marriage and reformed federal schools funding to be fair, consistent, and needs based across the nation and across school sectors. He successfully negotiated with President Trump to maintain a refugee resettlement deal he had agreed to with President Obama and to ensure Australia was not hit with tariffs or quotas on its steel and aluminium exports to the US. When Trump pulled out of the Trans Pacific Partnership, Malcolm refused to allow that 12 nation free trade deal to fall by the wayside and he rallied the remaining eleven countries to commit to a continuing TPP-11.
