Merger Partners

With a rich history of over 90 years, Gallagher has steadily grown to be one of the largest and most financially secure insurance brokers in the world. At Gallagher, we take pride in our culture and values which are exemplified through The Gallagher Way, a group of tenets which are what make us unique. Unlike many international brokers, we are a company run by brokerage consultants. This allows us to better understand the market, while providing our clients with the exceptional solutions that they deserve.

In Canada, we are seeking to expand our reach, add to our family of expert resources and better serve our clients. Our success over the years has been underpinned by the acquisition of highly regarded broker partners that share our values and ambition.

If you are seeking a partner to bring your business to the next level or create opportunities for you and your employees, we believe that we are the best merger option in Canada. As one of the most acquisitive brokers in the world, Gallagher brings more than just the deal to the table. We bring the strength and support of a global powerhouse to your business, creating positive change and growth to all stakeholders involved.

At Gallagher, our culture fosters teamwork, entrepreneurialism and success. Despite our present size and worldwide stature, we are still guided by our founder’s values of personal integrity, innovative thinking, deep commitment to clients, openness, empathy and respect for employees.

We look for merger partners with similar cultures who remain active in their businesses, but seek greater resources for clients and the professional opportunities found in a larger organization. This entrepreneurial spirit and team approach to serving clients is what has defined Gallagher for many decades.


To support professional advancement, Gallagher offers career paths for merger partners and their employees. Many of their employees have gained access to a full range of education and training programs—all aimed at career advancement and maximum earning potential.

Consider that:

  • Today, several former merger partners in Canada are senior leaders within our business.
  • Under the Gallagher brand, merger partners gain a competitive edge in recruiting and training top talent.
  • Our team approach to professional development enables less experienced employees to learn from their more seasoned colleagues.
  • Each year, hundreds of employees participate in classroom and online training programs.
  • In support of our partners’ recruiting efforts, we have offered a unique, industry-leading intern program for more than 40 years. Embracing the concept of learning by doing, the program now accepts more than 150 college students each summer from across North America.
  • Many of our employees have spent most or all of their careers with Arthur J. Gallagher, a credit to our company and the people who work here.
