John Cordin – Business Development Representative
John is one of the newest members of the Austral team, joining in November 2010. He is responsible for business development in Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory. His main roles are involved in the Seafood Trading Division but likes to be involved with domestic sales for Austral Fisheries and helping Dylan and Lesley with the export market. Introducing the Seafood Trading Division into Western Australia was a new area for Austral Fisheries and a tough one to crack with a strong local produce driven market and a lot of competition. 2012 looks to be a challenging yet exciting year for John.
In 2007, John completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Notre Dame University in Fremantle. Since completing his degree he was lucky enough to get a job on a 200ft motor yacht out of Florida as a deckhand. He was travelling on the motor yacht Mylin IV for almost two years, visiting various places including the Caribbean, BVI’s, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Estonia, Russia and Sweden. With his sea time on-board he gained a Yachtmaster Offshore ticket, enabling him to captain a 200 tonne motor yacht.
John loves everything to do with sport and is currently playing AFL for Collegians Amateur Football Club and cricket for Western Suburbs. He has completed the Rottnest Swim 4 times and is lining up for his 5th crossing, swimming in a duo.
