Gallagher recently celebrated the long service of 4 members of its Australian team – Craig Schutte, Steve Simpson, Sam Afzali and Adam Smith.

Craig Schutte, general manager – Australia and Asia Pacific, celebrated 20 years with the Australian team in April. His experience with Gallagher spans back a further 10 years, having worked as a Gallagher Channel Partner in South Africa before joining the Australian team in 2000.

Adam Smith, sales manager for NSW, and Sam Afzali, technical account manager for NSW, both celebrated 15 years with Gallagher this year. In 2019, national operations manager, Steve Simpson, was acknowledged for 30 years at Gallagher.

“We’re committed to building strong, ongoing relationships with our Channel Partners and customers,” said Schutte. “We’ve expanded our team over the past few years to keep up with demand, and our new staff, customers, and Channel all benefit from the many years of experience and shared wealth of knowledge amongst the team.”

More than half of the 31-strong Gallagher Australia team has been with the company for more than 10 years.
