Founding Director and owner of Orion NZ Radio Group, T L Parker Limited, Scorch Communication NZ, Scorch Canterbury, and Parker Communications, Garry has pioneered in providing solution based radio frequency (RF) communication devices and network services throughout New Zealand for over 42 years. Brought up in a family culture of mobile communications, Garry’s induction to RF occurred before his formal education. After graduating as a radio technician with First Class Honours, Garry extended his learning with Phillips before acquiring and expanding his family’s business.
As New Zealand’s first Motorola Dealer since 1983, and with current mobile radio product and infrastructure sales exceeding $50M with cellular sales exceeding $40M, Garry entered into a joint venture with Motorola and deployed New Zealand’s SmartNet trunked radio network in 1989. This became the building block to the success of the Motorola brand and T L Parker Limited. Whilst pioneering networks services in New Zealand from analogue to digital in 2010, Garry deployed a $4M Motorola Canopy wireless broadband product; thereby, providing wireless broadband to remote and rural communities throughout the South Island of New Zealand. Recent projects consist of a nationwide deployment of Motorola’s latest digital mobile radio network -Capacity Max; as well as WAVE 5000, which enables access to a mobile radio network through the gateway use of cellular devices.
As a communications consultant, Garry’s practical, theoretical and working knowledge of RF have provided future vision, reliability and successful delivery of customized designed, engineered and built communications solutions for networks and mobile radio products to the International Red Cross, all areas of avionics, healthcare service and mining industries as well as all levels of government in New Zealand and Australia. Garry’s recent consultancy and deployment of customized communication networks have focused on critical communication services and customised equipment that assist in interoperability during critical events. Recent customers include, but not limited to, The United States Government, Australian Federal Police, Christchurch International Airport, Canterbury District Health Board and various mining industries.
