Who we are

Gallagher is an international insurance brokerage, risk management and consulting firm, operating in 50+ countries. We are the chosen partner to more than 100,000 Australian businesses, from small businesses through to multinational corporations and iconic brands. 

Through our network of more than 30 regional and metropolitan branches across Australia, we understand local business communities because we are part of them ourselves.


Our background

Arthur J. Gallagher founded the business in a basement office in Chicago in 1927. Our Global Chairman, CEO and President, J. Patrick Gallagher – Arthur’s grandson – started as an intern in 1972 and has worked to carry on his family legacy: to protect businesses of all shapes and sizes and to help them grow with confidence.

Gallagher has remained true to its’ origins of having the heart of a family business culture.

Times change, ethics don’t

The world has changed a lot in our 90-plus years in business but one thing remains consistent: ethics. Our business operates a little differently from other insurance brokers out there, we are the only brokerage in the world to be named one of the World’s Most Ethical companies and we’ve done it ten times in a row. That means that our 850+ offices in over 50 countries all operate in a way that upholds ethical business practices and puts your business first.
