Suzannah Moss Wright
Managing Director, Indian Ocean Meats


Suzannah is a skillful international trade, structured finance, and foreign investment specialist with over 15 years experience representing clients all over the globe. She is a trusted advisor to a number of high net wealth individuals, government in Australia (both state and federal), the diplomatic corps of Arab Ambassadors in Australia, and many of Australia’s leading agribusinesses including meat, grain and horticulture producers. She supports clients establish and grow commercial relationships with business partners in the Arab World, notably in agriculture, food production and distribution, supported by her international trade, asset finance and transport law experience.

As a thoughtful and dynamic leader of people and business, she delivers informative and relevant training on export documentation compliance and how to engage in international trade. Suzannah is recognised as an excellent presenter and facilitator for networking opportunities, providing intelligence to enrich Australian business communities’ cultural, economic and social understanding of the Arab World. She possesses exemplary professional qualifications, having been awarded a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Masters in Economics. She is admitted to practice as a solicitor in the Supreme Courts of England & Wales, NSW and WA. She lectured financial risk management and commodity trading during her tenure at the Oxford College of Petroleum & Energy Studies, explaining international financial energy markets to participants from the UK, US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Suzannah trained with an International Law Firm in London, learning her trade in the highly competitive corporate environ where she rose to prominence as an efficient and commercially astute negotiator. Her discretion caused her to be head hunted by a bespoke English private bank to lead the legal department of the prestigious Superyacht finance group. Suzannah’s vision and leadership created a culture of improvement and teamwork; developing an enviable network of ultra-high net wealth businesspersons globally. Qatar National Bank acquired the bank during her tenure, resulting in a practical understanding of making Sharia law co-exist with transactions governed by English Law.

Suzannah left London and returned to Australia to become a full-time mother to her 2 children between 2007-2013. She returned to paid employment when Clyde & Co invited her to join their new offices in Australia. In 2014 Suzannah was asked to lead the Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce & Industry through their organisational transformation, combining her experience of international trade in the Arab World with strong commercial acumen and creative leadership. As CEO, Suzannah transformed the organisation to be considered a relevant and reliable voice for Australian industry, empowering the Australia-Arab trade relationship and earning the respect of stakeholders.

All the while, Suzannah’s passion for agriculture endured and she persistently studied opportunities to develop her own commercial venture. In collaboration with her business partners, she has now established a prime lamb production business in Western Australia, innovating genetic selection for superior meat quantity and quality; and utilising byproduct from horticulture in the feedlot to maximise conversion of feed to protein sustainably and cost effectively.
