Angus Taylor was elected to Federal parliament in September 2013, replacing long serving Liberal MP Alby Schultz in the rural NSW seat of Hume.
With a strong interest in economics, Angus was appointed to parliamentary committees including the Coalition’s Backbench Employment Committee, the Joint Committee on Trade and Investment Growth, the Joint Committee on Public Accounts and Audit and in late 2015 was appointed Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties.
After two years on the backbench, Angus was made an Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister with special responsibility for Cities and Digital Transformation.
Prior to entering parliament in 2013 Angus was a Director at Port Jackson Partners where he was a strategy and business advisor to a number of global and Australian companies and public sector organisations. He provided advice at a CEO and board level in the resources, agriculture, energy and infrastructure sectors. Prior to this he was a partner at global consulting firm McKinsey & Co.
Angus has a Bachelor of Economics (First Class Honours and University Medal) and a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from the University of Sydney. He also has a Master of Philosophy in Economics from Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar. His thesis was in the field of competition policy.
In his private capacity Angus has founded or advised a number of small, fast growing start-up businesses, many in the agriculture sector.
He lives at Goulburn with his wife Louise and their four children.
