Gallagher SA Business Development Executive Tom DeSantis, who presented the Women in Civil Award to winner Carly Zanini (pictured), says, “Gallagher is proud to be associated with the CCF SA’s recognition of the contribution women make to the civil construction industry and is 100% behind equal opportunity based on merit.
