Itasca-based Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. said Tuesday it has purchased McPherson Benefits Group, LLC, an employee benefit, consultation, management and brokerage firm in Madison, Mississippi.
"The McPherson team is highly regarded for their benefits expertise, industry knowledge and strong market relationships," Arthur J. Gallagher Chairman, President and CEO Patrick Gallagher Jr. said. "Their Mississippi presence, quality client service and team-based culture will be a great complement to our south central employee benefits operation. We are pleased to welcome Tracie (McPherson owner Tracie McPherson) and her colleagues to our growing Gallagher family of professionals."
John Neumaier, director of Gallagher's locations in the south central United States, will oversee Gallagher's Mississippi operations.
Tracie McPherson will stay on at the office, as will all McPherson associates.
