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. Our 7 consecutive recognitions as one of the Ethisphere Institute's Most Ethical Companies are testament to this. In fact, we’re the only broker to have earned this accolade.

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.

Our People

We attribute our long-standing success to our people. They are our best asset, helping our clients navigate an increasingly complex insurance market in a no-nonsense way. We don’t just want the employee on the other end of the phone or across the table to be knowledgeable - we want them to be someone you want to have a conversation with.  We respect your time, which is why we’re happy to do the legwork for you, helping you to secure the best insurance cover for your unique needs.

Today we are a global force for change, using our considerable experience, confidence and knowledge to reduce risk and provide our expertise wherever we go. We achieve this by forming lifelong partnerships with our clients, making business better for everyone. But that’s enough about us; get in touch to find out how we can work with you.
