Goyder's pick 'n' mix recipe for success

The success of Wesfarmers' Coles purchase has proven Richard Goyder's naysayers wrong, but the chief executive says his mission isn't over yet.

Goyder's now seeing the rewards. Coles is hot on the heels of Woolworths and its dominant market share of the Australian grocery spend, with the supermarket chain now responsible for a significant portion of Wesfarmers' total earnings. And yet the unassuming Goyder, never one to be satisfied, wasn't willing to concede they'd reached the pinnacle of success, even after declaring the process "good fun".

"We'll never put up a mission accomplished sign," he tells The Power Index, "We'll leave it to others to judge."
