Gallagher appoints industry veteran to a Perth-based role

A major insurance broker has appointed a 20-year insurance industry veteran to a newly-created role based in Perth.

Chet Richardson has taken up the WA sales-leader role at Gallagher, to lead a team of insurance professionals in providing risk-management advice and insurance solutions to thousands of companies across the state.

Richardson joined Gallagher from insurer IAG, where he was most recently CGU state sales manager for WA. He also has experience in managing claims and underwriting teams at both CGU and HBF Insurance.  

"We're very pleased to welcome Chet to the team and look forward to benefiting from his experience in growing our business and providing even better service and support to our clients," said Simon High, WA area director at Gallagher.
