Chief Information Officer
Julian Phillips has a background of Quality and Mechanical Engineering and Software Development, 20 years experience in IT management roles around the world including Germany, Slovenia, Italy and South Africa. But he’s still “humbled” by the fact he works for a privately owned Kiwi company which he says “leads the world in many aspects with its technology.”
He joined Gallagher in 2005 with a goal to provide a secure IT environment developing internal capabilities which deliver cost effective, scalable and value driven solutions in line with business objectives. Of course making a commitment to deliver outstanding quality can present its challenges however Julian appreciates the opportunities it presents his Gallagher team.
“I manage an incredibly talented team of individuals who confidently deal with frequent and very technically challenging duties. But we know our challenges are because we’re part of an organisation which constantly drives for improvement in all facets of its business, from individual business units to support teams.”
“We are fortunate that our executive guidance promotes confidence to attempt new approaches or investments, and this is supported by a great team spirit bridging all levels of the organisation."
