To prepare for further growth in the Australia region, Gallagher has appointed five new people to its regional sales and marketing teams.

Craig Schutte, Executive Vice President, Gallagher Asia Pacific & IMEA said the company “aims to improve the value offering to the existing market, provide further support to a growing Channel Partner and end user network, increase partner engagement and deliver outstanding enhancements in the small to medium business security space.”

Schutte added: “The key to our success is our team, and here at Gallagher, two of the values we live by as a company are helping each other to grow and building lasting relationships.

“With the growth of the Australian market, there is huge scope for professional development opportunities within our company. We are focused on building an exceptional team to support our growth.

“Not only will this contribute to the personal development of our team members, but it will also ensure that we continue to build meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with everyone in our business community.”

Greg O’Neill has been promoted to the role of National SMB and Perimeter Manager, where he will champion both solutions, with a particular focus on educating Channel Partners on the SMB solution and engaging with end users to gather market feedback.

Having O’Neill step into this role to give focus to the SMB and Perimeter portfolios created a need for a Business Development Manager; Simon Ambrose was hired for the position.

Starting in the security industry in the ’90s, Ambrose has worked for both integrators and multinational manufacturers within the security sector and other industries. Ambrose has a range of experience in technical products, having held roles in Technical Sales, Business Development and Product Management.

The Australian marketing team has also expanded to support the ambitious plans of the sales team and to deliver them with maximum effect. Samantha Gibbons has taken up the mantle of National Engagement Manager, a role that is focused on the critical partnerships within Gallagher’s ecosystem.

Tessa Williams, previously Regional Marketing Manager for New Zealand, has been appointed Marketing Manager; in this position, Williams is responsible for Gallagher’s PR engagement, campaigns and content creation activities across Australia.

Finally, Nicola Etherington has taken over Gallagher’s event environment as Events Specialist for Australia.
