Group Supply Chain & Manufacturing Executive
Derek is committed to empowering his team by offering challenges that they can find unique solutions to, just as he has been doing since joining Gallagher in 2011.
His first role with the company was Production Manager - Electronics followed by a move to Group Manufacturing Manager. His industry experience and leadership ability resulted in his progression to the current role of Group Supply Chain and Manufacturing Executive which covers the Gallagher sites globally in New Zealand, and the United States.
"The leadership experience and knowledge I have gained from each role has enabled me to take the next step in the company. My goal is to share that experience with my team so they can grow too".
He says his growth and the growth of the company is based on building enduring partnerships "Building enduring partnerships not only relates to the Operations department, but also to building mutually beneficial relationships with the wider Gallagher business, suppliers, and the communities we serve".
