Following the acquisition, Interbrok executives Angeles de Magalhães, Anselmo do Ó de Almeida, José Roberto Borelli, Luis Arthur A. David, Anthony Wyles, Edson Hirazaki and their team will remain in their current location and will report to Gallagher CEO of Brazil retail insurance brokerage operations Rodrigo Protasio and country manager Luiz Araripe.
