Your business in safe hands

A TRUE MERGER PARTNER

Safeguarding your legacy

As the largest family run brokerage in the world, we know the importance of protecting the foundations of business and the people who made our success possible.

When considering the next phase of your business, we believe it’s important to work with a partner who shares your commitment to building trust with your clients and investing in the people who have helped build a successful and highly regarded business.

We’re not in the business of merging just for volume. Since we acquired the OAMPS business in 2014 we’ve been steadily building a network of commercial and specialist brokerages to ensure home grown businesses across the country have access to a trusted adviser and partner helping protect their business interests.

Our purpose with our vendor partners is to provide them, their business and their employees a genuine opportunity to grow with a brokerage that is large enough to compete with the global leaders, but agile in its thinking and approach.

Be part of our Australian story

Founded by Arthur J. Gallagher in Chicago in 1927, Gallagher has grown to be a leading insurance brokerage, risk management, and consultant company. With significant reach internationally, our organisation employs over 34,000 people and our global network provides services in more than 150 countries.

A local partner you can trust

In Australia, since our acquisition of Wesfarmers brokerage OAMPS, we’ve become the chosen partner to more than 100,000 Australian clients, from small family run business through to multinational corporations.

Our network of more than 30 regional and metropolitan branches across Australia means we’re connected to local business communities which helps us better understand their needs.
