Gallagher has acquired Thompson Insurance, further solidifying its presence on the Sunshine Coast and adding valuable expertise and capabilities to a growing market. This acquisition brings together two companies with complementary strengths and skills, providing a more comprehensive offering to businesses in South East Queensland.

A familiar presence in Maroochydore for nearly 20 years, Thompson Insurance has built a strong reputation for consistent and dedicated client service. Their expertise in construction and commercial property insurance align with Gallagher's established strengths. The team from Thompson Insurance will be joining their colleagues at the Gallagher Sunshine Coast office in Birtinya, trading under the Gallagher brand.

Sarah Lyons, Gallagher Chief Executive Australia and Asia said: "This is our second investment in the region in recent months, following the acquisition of Ausure Coast & Country last December. The Sunshine Coast is a $21.5bn economy and its Regional Economic Development Strategy lays out a vision to grow to $33bn by 2033. Gallagher is determined to play our part in this by supporting businesses to face their future with confidence through the provision of bespoke quality risk and insurance solutions."

"It is wonderful to welcome Will and his team to Gallagher. They are already well respected in the area and I know their local knowledge and commitment to clients will set them up for further success within Gallagher. I'm confident their current and future clients will also benefit from Gallagher's strength and capabilities."
