Our history with mergers

Finding great merger partners has fueled the continuing growth of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.  In fact, we have completed and integrated 420 acquisitions from January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2016, almost exclusively within our brokerage segment.

Historically, we look for partners that demonstrate knowledge leadership in their practice areas, show a true commitment to client service through client-focused solutions and dedicate themselves to ethical conduct.

We’d be happy to put you in touch with the principals from these mergers. Their story is our story.


“To take our business to the next level, we knew we had to significantly reinvest in our organization or partner with someone who could provide excellent tools for profitable growth. Gallagher stood out as the best possible merger opportunity. The company’s professionalism and integrity made the transition go smoothly. The liaisons followed through exactly as promised.”
