A tenured enterprise and managed services veteran of 40 years, Gallagher will be involved in supporting continued growth of Magna5’s channel partner program. He was strategic pursuit director for Fujitsu America, where he leveraged his managed-services experience and relationships with third-party advisers to revitalize Fujitsu’s largest pursuits in North America.

“To stay ahead of competitors, businesses must be agile and adapt quickly to shifts in the market — to innovate without sacrificing performance,” he said. “Magna5 provides customers with an all-inclusive offering that combines technology, professional services expertise and 24/7/365 support to foster operational efficiency and performance, system up-time and significant cost savings.”

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in July.

Prior to Fujitsu America, he was vice president and strategic dealmaker for Capgemini, where he qualified, structured, negotiated and closed transactions totaling $1.2 billion. He also spent 25 years with Electronic Data Systems (EDS), advancing from entry-level account manager and systems engineer to top-level management.

“We are elated to welcome an executive of Gerry’s caliber to Magna5, where his extensive knowledge and remarkable track record of building teams and selling advanced technology solutions will fuel our continued expansion,” said Rick Lottie, Magna5’s CEO. “At every point in his career, Gerry instilled a winning mentality that every team needs to succeed. His performance and track record are unparalleled, and his strategic insight will propel Magna5 to national prominence.”

Magna5’s portfolio includes business continuity, managed security services, business voice and data services, and hybrid and network services, as well as UCaaS, IaaS and SaaS delivered from the cloud. It supports midmarket and large enterprise organizations.
