Major player AJG announce double broker change
Arthur J Gallagher has announced a double change in its business in a bid to strengthen broking relationships.

The changes will see Paul Moorcroft become state manager corporate in Victoria while Greg Johnson will take the same role in South Australia with both reporting to head of corporate broking, Mark Oatway.

Andrew Godden, chief executive of Arthur J. Gallagher Australia, said that the internal moves will be key to growth aims for the future of the company and will strengthen the teams in both Victoria and South Australia.

“Paul and Greg have both been integral to our business’ growth and our ability to provide our corporate clients with great solutions and service for many years,” Godden said.

"I am delighted that they are taking up these roles and I have no doubt that our teams in Melbourne and Adelaide along with our clients will benefit from their contributions.”

Moorcroft has been national practice leader – business development for AJGs corporate business for eight years and, in the role, helped facilitate “new business growth across a range of corporate practice lines,” the company said in a statement.

Johnson, the inaugural recipient of the Warren Tickle Memorial Award handed out by NIBA in 1990, joined AJG in 2011 and was recently appointed state manager of Victoria on a care-taker basis but will move back to a role in South Australia.

Moorcroft and Johnson will take their new roles officially on November 1 and are currently undertaking a handover.
