Our History

Our story began in 1927 with a desire to find a better way of doing business and the entrepreneurial courage to be different. We didn't just want to be another insurance brokerage; instead we wanted to help people solve problems in an authentic and above all, ethical, way. Founded on the principles of transparency and accountability, we've upheld our commitment to ethical business through decades of growth, change and expansion. For nearly a century, we've proudly built a reputation of trust and integrity with our clients and colleagues.

Over the years, Gallagher has expanded our breadth of offerings with risk management, HR benefits and consulting and wealth management. And we're just getting started.
