Australian workplace solutions technology company SafetyCulture has hired a new head of legal as part of future scaling of its global operations.
Kate Pullinger, whom SafetyCulture notes brings over seven years of legal experience from past employment with Clayton Utz and Norton Rose Fulbright before moving in-house as a senior corporate legal counsel for Vodafone, will serve as the company’s new head of legal.
As part of her role, she will advise on legal and risk compliance matters across the company’s operations in Sydney, Townsville, Manchester, Manila and Kansas City.
SafetyCulture chief executive Luke Anear said he was excited to welcome Ms Pullinger to the team.
“Kate has a demonstrated history of working as a legal practitioner across the technology and IT industry, so her expertise across this sector is extremely valuable for us,” he said.
“She will play a key role in managing commercial contracts and implementing legal and risk processes globally.”
Ms Pullinger added that her move to the company was an opportunity to work with a team of passionate and engaged individuals who are making a real change to workplace safety across the world.
“SafetyCulture’s core focus is about driving effective change in the health and safety industry and the company genuinely wants the best for its customers,” she noted.
“I’m excited to work for SafetyCulture as it thinks laterally and embraces technogy at a pace I’ve never experienced before.”
