Grant owns and operates Kulin Transport which he started 26 years ago originally transporting fertiliser from rail.  In 2012 Kulin Transport sold its livestock crates and now concentrates on transporting other rural commodities including grain, fertiliser and lime.

Grant was President of the Livestock and Rural Transport Association of Western Australia (LRTAWA) for seven years.   Grant has been Vice-President of the Australian Livestock Transporters Association (ALRTA) for several years.  In 2013 he was elected to the Kulin Shire in WA’s wheat belt.  Grant is married with two children and enjoys boating and fishing in his spare time.
