AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – Gallagher is continuing to gain recognition for its commitment to international markets, picking up two prestigious awards at the 2016 Air New Zealand Cargo ExportNZ Awards tonight.

Recognised as one of New Zealand’s most astute businessmen, Sir William has grown Gallagher into one of the largest and most successful private companies in New Zealand, employing almost 800 people domestically, another 400 globally and with annual revenues of more than $200 million.
“We’re pleased to be named Exporter of the Year and congratulate Sir William in being honoured Exporters Champion.

Under Sir William's leadership, Gallagher has become a New Zealand success story and one Hamilton is proud off. Sir William is also a significant contributor to the community and that is greatly appreciated. Well done from Hamilton”.
Sir William and the wider Gallagher team maintain regular contact with customers in the 130 countries in which Gallagher products are sold, with Sir William spending up to 150 days a year on the road representing the company and its philosophies, communicating across language and social barriers, while also emphasising the ethics and integrity of his professional and personal dealings.
The company has three sites in New Zealand – and offshore subsidiaries in Melbourne (Australia), Kansas City (United States), Nuneaton (United Kingdom), Johannesburg (South Africa), Owen Sound (Canada) and Osorno (Chile).
The awards were presented at The Langham Hotel in Auckland, and Gallagher Deputy CEO, Steve Tucker, received the honour on behalf of Sir William as he is currently in London for the IFSEC International security conference.
