The vice president of Eaton in Australia and New Zealand, Gordon Makryllos has left the company after four and a half years.
Makryllos first took over Eaton leadership with title of MD for the A/NZ electrical business in 2014 and will officially exit the business on 31 July.
Dan Agnew, the current general manager for power distribution A/NZ, will formally assume the role of MD for A/NZ from 1 July.
“For the past four years, Dan has built a high-performance culture across Eaton’s power distribution team, transforming its channel and achieving excellent growth results,” said Makryllos.
“With engineering and business qualifications, as well as experience in operational, commercial and strategy roles, Dan is well positioned to lead the Eaton workforce well into the future.”
Prior to joining Eaton, Agnew held several senior roles in Australia and the United States across strategy, customer experience and building channel partnerships. He had previously spent seven years at BOC South Pacific and, prior to then, two years at Jaycar Electronics.
“Together with our executive leadership team, my focus will be to continue to develop and grow our channels, our customers and our employees – while leading our business as we support transformation across the entire power train which is being driven by increased connectivity, renewable energy and population growth,” said Agnew.
“I look forward to continuing the exceptional coaching and learning culture that Gordon has built across Eaton, which has been key to helping our teams in Australia and New Zealand achieve their ambitions for all stakeholders.”
