Makryllos joins Eaton after the company reported 2013 sales of $22.0 billion with the business currently employing approximately 103,000 employees and selling products to customers in more than 175 countries.

“I look forward to working with our customers, partners and employees in providing organisations with a range of tailored products and related services dedicated to ensuring that reliable, efficient and safe power is available when it’s needed most,” Makryllos adds.

“With unparalleled knowledge of electrical power management across industries, we can customise, integrated solutions to solve our customers’ most critical challenges.

“I am committed to ensuring that the Eaton ANZ team makes customer success a top priority.”
