Gallagher Grows Australian Team 40 Per Cent
Gallagher's World Headquarters in Hamilton, NZ.
GALLAGHER is continuing to experience considerable growth across all regions and is adding to its numbers – over the last 3 years, the Australian Security Division has increased staff levels by 40 per cent.
As part of the current expansion, general manager of Australia & Papua New Guinea, Craig Schutte, has taken on a role with even further geographical reach in the role of Asia Pacific general manager, which enables the company to leverage the skills and experience he brings to the team.
In addition to Schutte’s promotion, Gallagher has added 2 members to its team on the ground in Australia. Samantha Gibbons has been appointed to the role of marketing and events manager and Kirk Jarvis has been appointed national training manager. Both will be located alongside the team in Queensland.
“Our Australian in-market team is going from strength to strength and we’re excited to be adding new roles to support our business growth” says Craig Schutte. “Both Samantha and Kirk come to us from our New Zealand head office and have a wealth of knowledge about our business and our solutions.”
Gibbons has been with Gallagher for the past 5 years in the global marketing team as events manager. She will play a key role in developing the Gallagher brand and continuing to support business partnerships throughout Australia.
Jarvis has worked for Gallagher for the past seven years starting as a technical account manager in South Africa and relocating to New Zealand in 2015 to join the head office technical support team; he was then promoted to a training role in 2017. His position is a new role in the Australian team and is part of Gallagher’s plan to implement local training resource within its key regions.
