Effective January 1, 2024, Gavin Gomes will step into the role after serving as General Manager, Dronamics Australia since August this year, says an official release.

Gavin’s track record in senior commercial roles in both start-up and private companies, listed entities and global multinationals, will be central to Dronamics’ evolving its commercial model and creating compelling customer experiences. The company has secured launch customers including Hellmann Worldwide Logistics (Germany), Hellenic Post (Greece), Emirates Post Group (UAE), Aramex (UAE), and will be looking to establish itself in market verticals including e-commerce, parcel and post, perishables, pharma, and spare parts."

Gomes has led commercial and management teams at companies such as Australia Post, Canon, Telstra, and IBM, the release added. "Gavin is also a qualified pilot and currently serves as a non-executive director of Royal Victorian Aero Club and CM Pacific."
