Arthur J Gallagher buys Commercial Insurance Brokers in US

Insurance brokerage and risk management firm Arthur J Gallagher (AJG) has acquired Commercial Insurance Brokers, the Tulsa, Oklahoma-based group of insurance producers and service personnel.

"Commercial Insurance Brokers will significantly increase our Oklahoma presence and build on our existing expertise, with practice areas that align nicely with our own," said J Patrick Gallagher, Jr., chairman, president and CEO of AJG. "I am pleased to welcome Brad and his associates to our growing Gallagher family of professionals."

Following the transaction, Brad McCrory, managing member of the acquired firm, and his associates will continue to operate from their current location under the head of Gallagher's South Central retail property/casualty brokerage operations Bret VanderVoort.

Commercial Insurance Brokers offers a broad range of property/casualty and employee benefit products and services to energy, construction, financial services, manufacturing, transportation, professional services, nonprofit, healthcare and high-net-worth clients throughout the US and internationally.
