Who we are

Gallagher is an international insurance brokerage, risk management and consulting firm, operating in 45+ 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 company purpose

We help you face your future with confidence.

Everything we provide in insurance, risk management and consulting services comes down to that one simple and powerful truth. We believe that in every organisation, and in every person, there are dreams, desires and potential waiting to be fulfilled. We’ve never seen this business as “What might go wrong?”


Our background

Arthur J. Gallagher founded the business in a basement office in Chicago in 1917. 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 eight times in a row. That means that our 850+ offices in over 30 countries all operate in a way that upholds ethical business practices and puts your business first.
