AGITO Appoints Alan Brooke_edited.jpg

Alan Brooke joins AGITO as National Business Development Manager for the Food and Beverage sector.

The announcement of Alan Brooke as National Business Development Manager is a significant win for AGITO and sends a clear signal that the business is ready to strengthen its profile once again in the beverage and food space.

With a global board of directors made up of both Hilton and AGITO shareholders and executives, the joint venture will allow both companies to broaden their current offer. Plans to extend AGITO’s global footprint and operations have been underway for the last twelve months, and this partnership will allow a more seamless transition into international markets, with support from Hilton to ensure resources are in place to service the expansion plans. The benefit for existing AGITO customers will be that AGITO is now better placed geographically to deliver automation solutions into global markets outside of Australia.


As National Business Development Manager for Food and Beverage, Alan will be responsible for building strategic relationships and driving sales in both of these unique markets.  He brings to the table extensive experience in developing automation solutions for clients, collaborating across a variety of stakeholders, and over the years has proven to be one of the most trusted names in automation.


“We are really excited to be welcoming Alan to AGITO. With over thirty years’ experience in designing and delivering packaging lines for the food and beverage industry, Alan will put AGITO back on the map in food and beverage. His in depth knowledge and his ability to quickly gain a deep understanding of his clients’ needs and priorities is what makes Alan an asset for any business.” Emma Townsend, Chief Executive Officer


Throughout his career, Alan has held many senior positions and has proven to be a trusted friend to clients and colleagues alike.  His past roles include Sales and Project Management at KHS Pacific for seven years, Sales Manager at Prime Engineering for sixteen years, and most recently National Sales Engineer at Foodmach.


Highly regarded and respected by his peers in the industry as one of the best in designing high speed packaging lines, Alan’s most recent achievement was the design of the upgraded Asahi Tullamarine Can Line 1000cpm, and the back end design of a new Asahi Can Line at the Yatala Brewery 1200cpm.   Alan will be working with existing clients of AGITO and will also seek out new business opportunities. 


“AGITO’s aim is to further grow across all our markets and industries, including in the beverage and food arena.  We want to leverage our significant experience in this space, and Alan’s expansive network, and technical knowledge, put us in an excellent position to be able to achieve this.” Emma Townsend, Chief Executive Officer.
