Acting ethically and with integrity has always been part of our culture and the fact that Gallagher has consistently received this accolade — and remains the only insurance broker to be recognised in this way — underscores our commitment to embracing and embedding ethical business standards and practices. It reaffirms our core values and what our clients expect of us – expertise, service, trust and value.
“From our company’s inception in 1927, Gallagher has always been committed to maintaining the highest standards of moral and ethical behaviour,” said J. Patrick Gallagher, Jr., Chairman, President and CEO. “Operating with integrity is a critical component of the Gallagher culture and we are truly honoured to again be recognised as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies in 2018.”
