Con Balaskas takes over as Motorola Solutions' MD A/NZ

Con Balaskas has replaced Steve Crutchfield as Motorola Solutions’ Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand.

Balaskas — who has held multiple senior positions in his 20 years with Motorola Solutions — has “played a pivotal role in the growth and expansion of the company’s managed services business”, according to the company.

“[Balaskas] 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,” said Crutchfield, who will continue working with Motorola Solutions in an expanded government and public safety leadership role, serving the Asia–Pacific region.

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

Balaskas also chairs Motorola Solutions’ Inclusion and Diversity Council, which aims to make the company a fairer, more inclusive place to work and helped it achieve its first certification as an Employer of Choice from Australia’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

Balaskas described Australia and New Zealand as technologically mature markets and early adopters of advanced innovations.

“Public safety and enterprise organisations in this region are committed to innovation and open to exploring new solutions and ideas.

“I’m looking forward to continuing our strong partnerships with local customers and channel partners to co-develop highly advanced voice, video and software solutions,” Balaskas said.
