Gallagher, currently the vice-president of product management at the network performance services firm, started Martello Technologies back in 2009 alongside Emilio DiLorenzo.
The University College Dublin electrical engineering grad also holds an MBA from the University of Ottawa and began his career in the industry with Nortel Networks in 1981. He worked with the telecom giant in senior leadership positions across Canada and Hong Kong before joining Mitel in 2005.
Gallagher’s VP role will end on Dec. 21 but he will remain on the company’s board of directors. Rob Doucette, former chief technical officer of recent Martello acquisition Savision, will step into the vice-president of product management position.
