Gallagher has acquired NSW-based Connect Insurance Group and Tasmania’s Scope Insurance Brokers to expand its regional presence and product offerings.

“Both acquisitions bring fresh opportunities to Gallagher and clients, and help us to further cement our relationships in the communities we serve,” Gallagher Head of Mergers and Acquisitions Michael Lewin said.

“Finding acquisition partners that offer the right blend of capability and cultural fit is critical.

“We are confident both teams offer this in many respects and are delighted to welcome them on board.”

Connect serves transport operators, civil contractors and SMEs, while Scope specialises in the food wholesale and manufacture, civil construction and labour hire spaces.

Scope says it now trades as Gallagher.
