Gallagher Insurance has been named as a new sponsor for the 103rd edition of the New Zealand Open, presented by Sky Sport.
This golf tournament is scheduled to take place from Feb. 29 to March 3, 2024, at Millbrook Resort. Previously known as Crombie Lockwood in New Zealand, Gallagher Insurance has a longstanding presence in the country, offering insurance solutions for over 45 years.
According to a news release, this partnership marks a significant milestone for both Gallagher Insurance and the New Zealand Open. Gallagher Insurance, recognised as part of the world's third-largest insurance brokerage, brings a wealth of experience and a commitment to community engagement. The company's emphasis on values such as teamwork, integrity, inclusivity, respect, and professional excellence resonates with the ethos of the New Zealand Open, making this partnership particularly fitting.
Carl O'Shea, Chief Executive of Gallagher Insurance, commented on the significance of the partnership, emphasising the alignment between the values upheld in professional golf and those of the company.
“We’re really proud to partner with the New Zealand Open as the exclusive insurance provider to the event. The values found in professional golf align to the values we live by as a company and we’re looking forward to being on the ground supporting locally at this event,” O’Shea said.
Elsewhere for the global brokerage, Gallagher recently published its financial results for the three months ended Sept. 30.
