Gallagher scoops up Mississippi agency

Arthur J. Gallagher has announced the acquisition of Pointer Insurance Agency. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Mississippi-based Pointer Insurance Agency offers a broad range of property-casualty coverages to businesses and individuals in Mississippi and Tennessee. The agency has a focus on commercial and residential construction, restaurants, the hospitality industry and artisan contractors. Pointer also offers health, life, disability and long-term care coverage for individuals and families.

Jon Pointer, Lisa Metz and their associates will continue to operate from Pointer’s current location in Southaven, Miss. They will report to Bumpy Triche, head of Gallagher’s South Central region employee benefits consulting and brokerage operations.

“Pointer is a great cultural fit with Gallagher and will help build our retail brokerage presence in the Northern Mississippi and Memphis region,” said J. Patrick Gallagher Jr., president, chairman and CEO of Gallagher. “I’m excited to welcome Jon, Lisa and their associates to Gallagher.”
