Gallagher Security Bolsters Top Team

Last updated: Monday, April 8, 2019 - Save & Share

A global security giant continues to bolster its top team in preparation for the retirement of its long-standing chief executive and chairman.

Gallagher has promoted Mark Junge to Global General Manager for its highly successful security division from his most recent role as chief operating officer.

Junge has been with Gallagher for more than 13 years and on the security division’s leadership team for six years.  He has stepped up into the role vacated by Kahl Betham, who has moved to deputy chief executive of the group.

In January, Richard Huison stepped up to General Manager for UK & Europe a year after joining Gallagher from Vanderbilt Industries access control brand ACT.

He is speaking tomorrow [9 April] at The Security Event at The NEC Birmingham on cyber security in an access control world, having declared a vision to equip companies and authorities to combat the growing cyber threat.

The recent moves are part of the leadership succession plan following the announcement last November of current chief executive and chairman Sir William Gallagher’s intention to retire to an executive director role within the next two to three years.

“Gallagher’s security business has achieved massive success within the last four years” Betham said.  “We are fortunate to have a very strong executive leadership team, and Mark has the ideal skill set to take over the role of Global GM and continue our journey of success.”
