Con Balaskas, Motorola Solutions: "open to exploring new solutions and ideas"

Communications company Motorola Solutions has appointed Con Balaskas as its new Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand. He has held multiple senior positions in a distinguished 20-year career with Motorola, and has played a pivotal role in the growth and expansion of the company’s managed services business. He will lead the Australia and New Zealand senior leadership team effective immediately, while continuing to lead the company’s Solutions team.

He replaces Steve Crutchfield, who will remain with Motorola in an expanded government and public safety leadership role serving the Asia-Pacific region.

“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 says. “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’s Inclusion and Diversity Council, which continues to make the company a better, fairer and more inclusive to work. Earlier this year the company earned its first certification as an Employer of Choice by the Australian Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency. 

He describes 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,” he says. “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.”
