Danielle Mitchell, Toby Tresise, and Nicola Etherington, Gallagher.

Gallagher continues to grow its Australian in-market training and marketing teams, with the addition of 3 new roles.

Toby Tresise, Danielle Mitchell, and Nicola Etherington join Gallagher as training solutions engineer, end user trainer, and events coordinator and executive assistant, respectively.

“The demand on our marketing and training teams continues to grow,” says Craig Schutte, general manager, Australia and Asia Pacific. “With the addition of these new roles, we can further support our valued customers and integrators on the ground here in Australia.”

Tresise is responsible for training Gallagher’s channel partners (integrators). He has been involved in the electronic security industry for over 25 years and brings a wealth of experience and extensive knowledge of Gallagher products, having previously worked for Gallagher channel partners.

Mitchell joins the training team as end user trainer, and is responsible for building a training programme that will help Gallagher users get the most out of their system. Mitchell brings experience as an end user herself, from her previous role at a university where she oversaw day-to-day running of campus security using Gallagher Command Centre. Tresise and Mitchell will be working alongside training manager, Kirk Jarvis.

Etherington joins Gallagher as events coordinator and executive assistant. She will be supporting Craig Schutte and working alongside marketing and events manager, Samantha Gibbons, coordinating the Australian engagement programmes. Etherington comes to Gallagher from the hotel industry, where she’s coordinated a range of events over the past 3 years.

“We’re excited to have Toby, Danielle, and Nicola on board,” says Schutte. “The skills and experience they each bring to their roles will play an important role in the development of new initiatives, such as Gallagher’s virtual training environment.”

With in-person training currently unable to take place due to the global situation, Gallagher’s Australian team has been developing a virtual training environment to give attendees access to trainers, just like in face-to-face training. The team hopes to launch this in the coming months.

Online training remains free to Gallagher Channel Partners until the end of May 2020. An end user online course will be available from June 2020.
