Promotion will support expansion

An international safety and medical solutions provider in the county has promoted a long-standing member of the team.

Gavin Peacock will take on a new role at Blyth-based Dräger as marketing manager for plant safety operations (PSO) and application driven markets (ADM).

Originally from Lancashire, Mr Peacock joined Dräger as a technical specialist 11 years ago after studying electrical and electronic engineering at Northumbria University.

He has a remit to support the strategic marketing of plant safety products from a UK-wide perspective.

Mr Peacock said: “I’m very proud to be stepping into this new role at Dräger. It’s a great company to work for.

“I’ve been here since I left university, and I really believe in what Dräger does – engineering technology which protects lives.”
