Gallagher, a global insurance, risk management, and consulting services company, has been appointed as the professional indemnity (PI) broker for Amey in a multi-year deal.
Amey, a subsidiary of the global infrastructure and services operator, Ferrovial, is one of the UK’s largest infrastructure support service providers.
Gallagher secured the contract by “showing an understanding” of Amey’s diverse risk exposures and how to support the firm in the face of a difficult PI market.
Lee Worth, head of insurance at Amey, said: “It quickly stood out that Gallagher understood the business and the risks we face, and what we wanted to achieve. Their innovative and alternative approach was a clear differentiator.”
Gallagher provides insurance and risk management advice to infrastructure firms and has an established domestic and international client portfolio.
Julie Scott, adviser at the firm’s specialty construction practice, said: “Gallagher has had a strong presence in the infrastructure sector for some time, but this significant appointment is a further step in establishing us as the broker of choice in this sector.”
News of the deal has come just days after the company announced two senior appointments to its SME and personal lines leadership team.
