A Brokerage Run By Brokers
Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. was founded by brokers in 1927, and to this day, is still run by brokers. Since our founding, we have had only three CEOs, all insurance brokers, and all named Gallagher. When your name is on the door, you have a deep sense of personal responsibility to your clients and their needs.
Arthur J. Gallagher (Canada) Group's parent company, Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, also has had leaders who have been insurance brokers. Over the years, there have been five Presidents, four which have been promoted from within and one that was an acquisition partner, but all who have been insurance brokers.
Our current President, Jim Gault, started his career in Gallagher’s Career Launch program, now named Gallagher EDGE, which is a two-year training program started in the 1960s for newly graduated college students to learn about the brokerage and insurance industries. This program continues today, and we are equally committed to recruiting and training new and emerging talent to lead our organization into the future.
