Ambitious new brand enjoys "global reach"
Gallagher Employee Benefits (GEB) has announced its official launch in the UK today, following the merger of Heath Lambert Employee Benefits and Gallagher Risk & Reward.
GEB is now the UK employee benefits brand of Arthur J. Gallagher International, one of the world’s largest insurance, employee benefits and risk management advisers.
It will offer corporate clients advice on a range of areas, including pensions, life, disability, healthcare, employee wellness and benefit choice.
Michael Brown, formerly head of Heath Lambert Employee Benefits, said: "UK companies have had a tough year, and 2012 is set to get even harder, with auto-enrolment and other major initiatives impacting on corporate budgets, and it is now more important than ever for firms to have copper-bottomed, sustainable employee benefits strategies and the necessary policies in place."
He said that Gallagher's "global reach" would help the new firm to serve the needs of international clients.
