The Gallagher Way
Leaders where it counts.
While the world of Gallagher is ever expanding and evolving, we remain rooted in the principles that have informed our actions every day for generations. In 1984, then Chairman and CEO, Bob Gallagher, took time to write them down in his own hand.
These shared values built us. They guide us. They inspire us.
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.
Corporate Social Responsibility
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.
