Continuing the rapid growth of its global team, Gallagher has announced the appointment of George Dunleavy in the newly created role of Technical Business Development Manager for South Australia and Northern Territory.
Based in Adelaide, George has over 15 years of security industry experience and was most recently with the Department for Education as Strategic Manager for Security and Emergency Management.
