Arthur J. Gallagher acquires benefits consultant


Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. has acquired Pewaukee, Wisconsin-based employee benefits consulting firm Burkwald & Associates Inc.

Burkwald is a management and employee benefits consulting firm that provides group employee benefits and consulting services to Midwest commercial and public entity clients in the Midwest, Gallagher said Friday in a statement.

Dan Burkwald and his staff of 15 employees will continue to operate from their Pewaukee location and report to William Ziebell, Gallagher's north central employee benefit consulting and brokerage leader, a Gallagher spokeswoman said Monday.

“Not only do they have a sales culture that matches ours, their team is also focused on high-quality customer service,” J. Patrick Gallagher Jr., chairman, president and CEO, said in the statement of the Burkwald purchase. “In addition, their Milwaukee-area presence and solid industry relationships will be a terrific complement to our expanding employee benefits brokerage and consulting operation.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
