The Gallagher Way

Leaders where it counts. The Gallagher Way.

Shared values at Gallagher are the rock foundation of the company and our culture. The 25 key tenets of this culture were penned in 1984 by our former Chairman and CEO, Robert E. Gallagher. While the world of Gallagher is ever expanding and evolving, we remain rooted in these values that built us, guide us and inspire us. It’s the Gallagher Way.


We work together as a team and harness our collective strengths to support our clients, business partners and each other.


We encourage creativity, resourcefulness and entrepreneurship to generate practical solutions that create client value and support business growth.


We take our responsibility as corporate citizens very seriously and make positive contributions to the communities in which we live and work.


Our focus is on people, not products. With our knowledge, insight and action, we help clients see the potential and not risk.


We demonstrate leadership in business and promote the professional development of our teammates to achieve their full potential.


Maintaining the highest standards in integrity and ethical practices has been a pillar of our success.
