Rockwell Automation announced the recent appointment of David Hegarty as Managing Director Australia and New Zealand.
David brings a wealth of sales and marketing experience to the role, and has a firm focus on customer service. With Rockwell Automation since 1999, he is inspired by the high quality of the company's technology, products and people.
According to Hegarty, their vision is for Rockwell Automation to be the most valued supplier of industrial automation products and solutions in the region. He sees his new role as one of translating what being ‘most valued’ means to customers and industry in the region, and leading his team to meet and exceed customer expectations.
Following his appointment on 5 November, Hegarty takes on a dual role and will continue to maintain his previous role of Regional Sales Director for the region, further strengthening the company's dedication to customers.
Hegarty has previously managed branches in Sydney and Brisbane, and also spent several years based in Singapore, giving him a broad understanding of the capabilities of the company and strong links to leadership in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Hegarty also believes that the current economic uncertainties in Europe and China open up tremendous opportunities for Rockwell Automation with many manufacturers and producers moving their focus to productivity in Australia and New Zealand.
