Gallagher Security announces new Swedish team to ‘drive growth’ in Europe

Gallagher has announced the introduction of a new team that’s poised to service the growing market in Sweden and the surrounding Nordic countries.

Synergies across the vertical alignment of Gallagher’s established business in the UK and the business opportunities for the company in Sweden ‘played a role’ in the company’s decision, with key focuses on critical national infrastructure, military, and complex environments as well as the country’s adoption of ‘cutting-edge’ cyber technology.

The new team is led by Håkan Björkman and including Daniel Groth (Technical Account Manager) and Johan Reich (Business Development Manager), who are ‘experts’ in the Nordic market for access control, perimeter and intruder detection solutions, according to Gallagher and are tasked with ‘building lasting partnerships’ for the firm across Sweden and the Nordic region.

Speaking on the expansion of Gallagher’s on-the-ground support in Europe, Gallagher’s Regional Manager for the United Kingdom and Europe, Richard Huison said: “We are delighted to welcome this new team of highly experienced individuals to grow the Gallagher brand throughout the Nordics.

“Gallagher is in a very strong position to solve business problems to meet the needs and concerns of many companies that operate throughout mainland Europe. Cyber resilience and maintaining operational continuity are key to protecting what matters most, whether it is with energy generation or manufacturing.

“We are really excited to see our European journey start with a team and country that mirrors our own values, culture, and appetite for growth and success.”

Gallagher Country Manager for Sweden, Hakan Bjorkman said: “My colleagues and I are thrilled to become Gallagher’s team in Sweden and the Nordics. Coming from a Swedish security industry background, each of us recognised that Gallagher was more than just another security system supplier.

“Not only does Gallagher’s product portfolio feel unique and offer the features the market demands, but it’s also impressive to witness the culture of the company, the respect that is extended to everyone no matter whether they are an employee, channel partner, or end customer. Everyone is welcomed and valued in team Gallagher. We look forward to representing Gallagher in Sweden”.

Håkan Bjorkman has ‘over 25 years’ of experience within the security industry with a background in building relationships with some of the biggest organisations throughout Sweden.

Johan Reich and Daniel Groth join Håkan in creating a ‘strong channel and consultant network’, with the aim to capitalise on vertical market strength in critical infrastructure, corporate and multi-tenanted buildings, and high security verticals. Both being ‘highly motivated’ in delivering compelling business value and brand reputation, according to Gallagher.
