Over the course of his career, Gallegos served as Ecuador's Head of Mission to Bulgaria from 1985 to 1989; Ambassador to El Salvador from 1994 to 1997; Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneve from 1997 to 2000, Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, and Ambassador to Australia, among other positions held.
