Gallagher’s commitment to local communities in which we serve is well documented. We’ve been proud to sponsor community events for generations. We believe the best way to truly impact people’s lives is to be part of them. What better way to do that on a national stage than to partner with another like-minded Chicagoland organization? Gallagher is very excited about its association with the Chicago Cubs.
Gallagher’s partnership with the 2016 World Champion Chicago Cubs and the Ricketts Family makes perfect sense. Both companies are globally known, family-based, and active in civic and philanthropic investments. Through the partnership with the Cubs, Gallagher becomes part of the Wrigley Field neighborhood experience while working closely with Chicago Cubs Charities on projects benefitting community causes across the city and beyond. Additionally, the Cubs become indelibly linked to the insurance brokerage, benefits and risk management services partner awarded the Most Ethical Company status for seven consecutive years and one which has been part of the Chicago business landscape for over 90 years. Our partnership is clearly a great way for both organizations to continue to help the communities which we both proudly call home.
Gallagher has the naming rights for the iconic Western Gate at Wrigley Field, as well as the popular, formerly known Park at Wrigley, which is now known as Gallagher Way. Close to 700,000 fans and visitors were welcomed to Cubs games, concerts and tours through this main entrance into the historic ballpark when it was constructed in 2017.
The town square-style Gallagher Way is adjacent to Wrigley Field and serves as the cornerstone of this Chicago entertainment district. It serves as a social hub for a number of award-winning restaurants, high-end retailers and the uniquely-styled Hotel Zachary at Gallagher Way.
Gallagher Way serves as a welcoming gateway for visitors to other Wrigley Field activities, concerts, farmers’ markets, winter festivals and more, even when the Cubs are not playing.
Why Gallagher Way?
This designation brings the essence of The Gallagher Way to life. It’s a state of mind. It’s how we conduct business and how our people operate. We feel the outward manifestation ﬁts the purpose of the space and shares in the same values as the Cubs – community, ethics and heritage. It’s a unique opportunity to raise our proﬁle on the global stage, connecting us with clients and the public at large like never before.
