Insurance broker, Arthur J. Gallagher, has marked its expansion in Manchester with a major rebrand of the Giles Insurance and Gallagher Heath arms of its business, which it acquired in 2013 and 2011 respectively. The rebrand to the Gallagher name also encompasses Oval Insurance — another strong regional broking business acquired in 2014 — and has created a single common identity for the insurance broker’s commercial insurance businesses, reflective of their combined expertise and wider client proposition.
Locally, Arthur J. Gallagher employs 75 people and specialises in tailored insurance solutions across a range of sectors for businesses in the wider Manchester and North West area. The bringing together of these high-performing businesses has bolstered its offering and set Arthur J. Gallagher up for significant growth in the city. It has invested in additional office space, has two new senior recruits for 2015 and plans to expand the team to 85 over the next two years.
Paul Fairhurst, Branch Director, said: “This is a very exciting time for Arthur J. Gallagher in Manchester; a new brand combining three successful businesses into a powerful corporate and commercial broking house in the city. With growth comes the opportunity for job creation, and we’ll be working closely with MIDAS to help us realise our long term vision.”
