Darren Smith

Territory Manager - Bay of Plenty/South Waikato



Darren Smith worked in Gallagher Animal Management’s customer support team for eight years before taking on the role of Territory Manager for the Bay of Plenty/South Waikato in early 2014.

His strong communication skills and excellent product knowledge are put to good use helping new and existing customers “find the best fencing, weighing and EID solutions for their specific circumstances”.

Darren was raised in the Bay of Plenty and still has family in the region.  “A big part of my life has been spent in The Bay, so I know the area fairly well”.

After leaving school he moved to Auckland and worked for a freight-forwarding company, before moving to Hamilton to join Gallagher.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here. Gallagher is an innovative company with a great range of products that are specifically designed to make life easier for farmers.”

Darren and wife Pam have four children and live on the outskirts of Hamilton.

As well as being a keen rugby follower, he enjoys participating in a range of social sports, including five-aside soccer.
