Eaton announces new Managing Director

Power management company Eaton has announced Dan Agnew will assume the position of Managing Director Australia and New Zealand from 1 July 2019.

Agnew has more than 20 years’ experience across the industrial and technology sectors, most recently as General Manager Power Distribution ANZ at Eaton.

He will take over from Gordon Makryllos, who said Agnew’s leadership skills and experience at Eaton will be critical as the organisation strengthens its position across the ANZ power quality and power distribution markets.

“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,” Makryllos said. “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.”

Agnew said he looks forward to leading Eaton through its next phase of growth.

“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,” he said.

“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.”
