Gallagher acquires Winnipeg brokerage B.R. Rhymer

Part of strategy of partnering with smaller, family-owned brokers

The international division of Arthur J. Gallagher outside the U.S. has acquired B.R. Rhymer Insurance, a personal and commercial lines broker located in Winnipeg. The agreement will see the business, which has been operating under a franchise agreement since 1995, become wholly owned by Gallagher.

Gallagher says this latest merger is part of its long-standing strategy of partnering with smaller, family-owned and entrepreneurial brokers “to facilitate consistent and profitable growth across the territories in which the business operates.”

B.R. Rhymer currently trades under the Ranger Insurance brand, which became part of Arthur J. Gallagher following the Noraxis acquisition in July 2014. Today, Ranger Insurance is Arthur J. Gallagher Canada Limited’s Prairie division and operates from six offices in Winnipeg and the surrounding areas.
