About Gallagher

Gallagher is one of the world’s top three insurance brokerage and risk management companies, with a network that provides services in more than 130 countries.

Established by Arthur J. Gallagher in 1927 in Chicago, the Gallagher family retains a close involvement with the company. Gallagher CEO J. Patrick Gallagher Jr. took up the leadership reins in 1995 and continues to guide us today with the same values laid down decades earlier.

Under Pat’s leadership, the company has grown substantially and today Gallagher is an S&P 500 company. With offices around the world, Gallagher people are an integral part of local communities, helping our clients to face their future with confidence.

Gallagher in New Zealand, previously known as Crombie Lockwood, has been built on a long history of helping New Zealanders with their insurance needs. Our local business is still led by two of our Kiwi founders, Steve Lockwood and Carl O’Shea.

Our Gallagher advantage

Getting the right insurance cover can prove testing, particularly if your business has complex requirements. With Gallagher’s extensive global connections and reputational strength, we can secure cover options and competitive pricing from a wide range of global insurers.

A trusted partner for your business

Growing your bottom line is a risky business. As insurance specialists, we make sure you are covered for unwelcome surprises so your company can thrive, whatever comes your way.

Our size and scale also give us a significant advantage when negotiating premiums, terms and claims on clients’ behalf.

Extensive claims expertise and support

When things go wrong, you can rely on us to support you. With our extensive claims expertise and insurer contacts, we work to achieve the best possible outcome for your claim.

Local focus, international strength

In New Zealand, we’ve been helping Kiwis with their insurance needs for more than 45 years. Our clients are supported by teams of over 1,000 broking professionals in more than 30 offices around the country.

Our characteristic blend of local expertise and global reach means we can support our clients wherever they do business.
