Five minutes with Garry Cartwright

As a leader in Elders’ livestock business, Garry Cartwright’s priority is to nurture the next generation of up-and-coming talent.

Garry Cartwright has been with Elders for a total of more than a decade, across two stints. 

His experience in the southern Queensland livestock sector is nearly second to none, having worked in both agent and leadership roles throughout his career.

Currently, Garry works as southern Queensland’s livestock manager, which involves supporting branches in their livestock offering, building their numbers and bringing clients on board. 

Garry said working for Elders, and in livestock sales generally, has been an incredibly rewarding pathway.

“The best part of this role is absolutely seeing great results coming through for your clients,”

“But aside from that, a great thing is when I see young people striving for and achieving results and getting that real sense of achievement. 

“It comes down to that sense of pride and being able to step back and see everyone working together as a single network.”

Garry said he enjoys mentoring and spending time with new and up-and-coming agents. 

“A very proud moment for me was when one of our younger agents came up to me and said, ‘thank you for giving us a start, you don’t realise how much you do for us’, and I just replied, ‘actually, you don't realise what you do for me’. 

“I get a really big kick out of the sense of satisfaction I see from agents across Queensland, when they have a good result over a mob of sheep or cattle or whatever it may be. That’s one of the best feelings.”

A significant event in Garry’s calendar this year will be Beef Australia, which returns to Rockhampton from 5 to 11 May. 

Garry explained that Beef Australia is an exciting prospect for beef producers across Australia, and is looking forward to attending for the very first time.

“Beef Week will actually be a whole new experience for me, because believe it or not, I haven’t been before,” Garry said.

“The whole thing will be an eye opener for me. I’m really looking forward to it. I am keen to see some of the emerging ideas which I might not have been exposed to before. I think it will be a great thing for me, and for new ideas for Elders.”

The ever popular Elders Pavilion will be back at Beef 2024, playing host to the latest in industry innovations for beef producers. We'll have exclusive deals from our event partners and a lot more planned. Looking forward to seeing you there - learn more about the event and what Elders has planned.
