Our recent acquisition into the Arthur J. Gallagher group (AJG)
Founded in 1927, the Arthur J. Gallagher group of companies has become one of the largest insurance brokerage and risk management companies in the world. With significant reach internationally, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. employs over 16,000 people and provides services in more than 140 countries. MHIB has been a Network Partner of Arthur J. Gallagher in New Zealand for the last three years. MHIB’s value proposition is closely aligned with that of Arthur J. Gallagher’s as we look to bring international experience in niche sectors to the local market. Culturally our businesses are aligned and the business fits Arthur J. Gallagher International’s growth strategy of investment in the Asia Pacific region. It’s a perfect starting point for AJG’s New Zealand policy of identifying niche brokers that complement the existing Australian business.

MHIB will continue to remain your trusted broker and you will receive the added benefit of global servicing and access to multi-national insurance programmes no matter where you are located.

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that this change should not affect our clients in any way. It is very much business as usual for the MHIB offices with the management structure remaining unaltered as a result of the deal. The Chief Executive Officer of MHIB, Graham Henry; Managing Director, Murray Calder and Executive Director Jason Harkness continue on in their existing capacities and will also form part of the new Board.

It is expected that MHIB will change its existing brand to the Arthur J. Gallagher brand in due course and we will keep you fully informed of these changes due to take place in the near future.

Thank you for your continued custom on behalf of everyone at MHIB and Arthur J. Gallagher.
