Gallagher acquires NSW brokerage

Gallagher has announced that Newcastle based Russford Insurance Agency has joined the business, effective 2 February.

Mark Bramley, area director – Newcastle at Gallagher said, “This is an exciting time at Gallagher and to see the willingness of independent brokers joining the Gallagher team speaks volumes on the relevance and reputation of our brand in the Australian market.”

Chris Ford and Graeme Russell, directors of Russford, added that they will leave the business as part of the deal to pursue opportunities outside of the industry.

“We’re confident that Gallagher presents our clients with new opportunities and access to an expanded range of insurance products and solutions to better protect your business, now and in the future,” they said in a statement.
