Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. has acquired The MW Bagnall Co. based in Phoenix.
The MW Bagnall Co. is an employee-benefits broker as well as a human resources consulting firm that provides employee benefits, consulting services and insurance products to middle- and larger-market businesses in the Southwest.

"MWB's team has the expertise, market relationships and quality service that we value in our acquisition partners," Chairman, President and CEO J. Patrick Gallagher Jr. said. "In addition, their southwestern U.S. presence and their team-based sales culture will be a terrific complement to our Western employee benefits consulting and brokerage operation. We are pleased to welcome Mark, Cynthia and their associates to our growing Gallagher family of professionals."
