Regional Multinational Practice Leader

It’s a very exciting time at Arthur J. Gallagher.

My current role

As the Regional Multinational Practice Leader for the Southeast Region, my main responsibility is developing new business internationally.

What gets me going every day

I love going after the large international accounts. It is a very exciting time at Arthur J. Gallagher as we expand our business globally. Gallagher has an exceptional reputation as a major player domestically, and we are now aggressively growing our global reach and international capabilities every day. The opportunities this creates are tremendous.

What our culture means to me

The culture at Gallagher is all about being part of a great team. That may not sound like a big deal, but it really is. I’ve noticed that in our industry, the norm for people tends to be very isolated, to be out for themselves, to only be worrying about their “deals.” It’s just not like that here. We're a company of driven and competitive people, yet we help each other out and share in each other's successes.

What I like the most

It’s a performance-driven, results-oriented atmosphere, yet at the same time it’s very supportive. I also like the diversity of our offerings. We've established cross-divisional teams of experts in numerous industry niches and practice areas, ranging from agribusiness to aviation, to the entertainment industry and higher education. We’re in many markets the other players just aren’t in. Gallagher, and Gallagher employees, have a stellar reputation in the industry. Our professionals are viewed as industry thought leaders who are firmly focused on client satisfaction.

What’s different about Arthur J. Gallagher

Gallagher is – and has always been – a family-run business, and that’s evident in the way we do business and treat people. Here, you feel like you’re part of an extended family. You’re more than a work colleague. People genuinely care about each other and want to help you succeed. At the other companies I worked for, I didn’t feel that. I felt like just an employee.
