Motorola Solutions has appointed Con Balaskas to the role of managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

Balaskas will lead the company’s senior leadership team as well as continuing to lead the solutions team.

He said he is looking forward to furthering partnerships with customers and channel partners to co-develop new solutions as the region has a high level of engagement with new technology.

Additionally, Balaskas will be retaining his position as chair of Motorola Solution’s inclusion and diversity council.

He takes over from Steve Crutchfield who takes on the role of regional vice president of Asia Pacific.

“Con has led some of Motorola Solutions’ largest and most complex projects including the planning and delivery of our significant public safety programs in Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia,” Crutchfield said.

“His strong relationships with Motorola Solutions’ customers and team members throughout Australia and New Zealand will serve him well in his new role.”
