Specialist distributor Hills has named Andy Hall as head of its health solutions business for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
Hall joined the distributor in early 2017 as general manager of health sales, having previously worked with Rauland Australia for more than 12 years as national sales and business development manager.
Prior to that, Hall was general manager, overseeing the nurse call and patient entertainment businesses.
“With wins across a number of major projects, including the recently announced contract to supply a nurse call solution to the new Central Acute Services Building as part of the Westmead Redevelopment project in NSW, Hills has demonstrated its ability to deliver projects of any size and complexity,” Hall said.
In May, Hills secured the contract to supply a nurse call solution for the Westmead Central Acute Service building in NSW.
The Westmead Central Acute Service building is part of the over $900 million redevelopment project of the Westmead precinct.
Specifically, the new hospital building will integrate a number of adult and paediatric services including pharmacy and imaging, state-of-the art operating theatres and a new emergency department for adult and paediatric patients.
“Under Andy’s leadership, the nurse call business has gone from strength to strength, with Hills securing new contracts and creating a strong pipeline of work to be delivered during the year,” CEO and managing director David Lenz said.
“Over the past 17 months, Andy has been responsible for reshaping our sales team and driving strategy to focus on early customer engagement.
"He has introduced a high-level approach to customer service and customer life cycle management around our nurse call platform with strong sales results.
“With his experience, track record of success and passion for the health care industry, he will play a key role in optimising our sales processes and developing the strategy for the next phase of growth for the health business."
