Lance Hockridge  

Managing Director & CEO Aurizon Holdings Ltd.

Lance Hockridge became Managing Director & CEO of Aurizon in July 2010 to lead the company through what would be the largest IPO in Australia in a decade. He has guided the transition to private ownership and Aurizon’s listing as a top 50 ASX company after 145 years as a government owned and operated railway.

Lance has more than 30 years’ experience in the transportation and heavy industrial sectors in Australia and the United States with BHP and BlueScope Steel. At BHP Billiton Limited, Lance was a member of the leadership team that led BlueScope Steel’s successful demerger from BHP and subsequent listing on the ASX.

In 2005 Lance was appointed President of BlueScope Steel’s North American operations where he led a major turnaround in safety, production and financial performance.

From 2007 until 2010, he was Chief Executive Officer of QR Limited which was split to form Aurizon and the passenger-focussed Queensland Rail that has remained in government ownership.

Lance is leading a major transformation program at Aurizon aimed at delivering world-class safety, customer service excellence and superior commercial capability.

Lance lives in Brisbane where Aurizon is headquartered.
