Gallagher appoints Louise Piper as Head of Strategic Account Management


Gallagher has appointed Louise Piper as Head of Strategic Account Management. Louise joins Gallagher with a wealth of industry experience gained at both global brokers and insurers.

Louise most recently was International Brokers Director at Aviva where she was responsible for managing all large and consolidator broker relationships for the insurer and leading its distribution and sales team to grow the business. Prior to this, she worked at AXA XL as Head of Client and Distribution Management. She has also held leadership roles at WTW as Head of UK Retail Broking, and Marsh as Head of National Corporate Placement.

In her new role, Louise will be responsible for the management of Gallagher’s offering to large multinational clients and she will work alongside the specialist broking teams in Gallagher’s UK Retail and Speciality divisions to coordinate and design market-leading solutions for clients. She will report to Specialty CEO, Jonathan Turner.

Commenting on the appointment, Jonathan said: “Louise brings a huge amount of leadership experience in account management at both broking firms and underwriting businesses and she is a fantastic addition to the Gallagher team. She has a proven track record of driving business success through a deep understanding of customer needs and her appointment demonstrates our commitment to offering our customers leading edge solutions as their trusted risk partner. As the size and breadth of our business continues to grow we want to ensure that our offering to complex, multinational entities is the best in the market and Louise will work with our existing teams to support the evolution of our client proposition.”

Louise added: “I’m very pleased to be joining Gallagher and to contribute to the ambitious growth plans for the business. I believe Gallagher’s culture and client centric approach is second to none, and in my new role I will be focused on how we can build on our offering to multinationals and other large corporates, to ensure clients get the very best cohesive service to manage all the different risks their business faces.”
