BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Gallagher buys agriculture agency

M&A

Arthur J. Gallagher and Co. Inc. on Wednesday said it has acquired West Monroe, Illinois-based The Kirksey Agency Inc. in a deal expanding its agricultural expertise.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1980 as a crop insurance agency serving Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi, Kirksey has since expanded to provide commercial and personal coverages to clients across the south-central U.S., Gallagher said in a statement.

Founders Bill and Grace Kirksey and about 12 employees will continue to operate from West Monroe, under the direction of Bumpy Triche, head of Gallagher’s Mid-South region retail property/casualty brokerage operations.

Gallagher is the fourth-largest brokerage ranked by revenue generated by U.S. clients, according to Business Insurance’s 2020 ranking.
