Vyvienne joined Arthur J. Gallagher in September 2013. She is a qualified barrister who specialised in insurance law and has more than 30 years’ experience in the broking world and a deep knowledge and understanding of all the core territories in which Gallagher is looking to invest internationally. She is responsible for driving and delivering international growth, by identifying and developing acquisition opportunities outside the UK, US and Australia.

Vyvienne also serves as the CEO of the Overseas Division within the new Gallagher Global Brokerage and as such is responsible for the businesses across Asia, Latin America, Canada, the Caribbean, Scandinavia and Continental Europe. We have more than 1,000 colleagues in our 'Overseas' subsidiary operations which are now a meaningful financial part of our Group. Many of these operations trade extensively with their counter parts in other areas of the Gallagher family which is producing good revenue symbiosis.

Vyvienne joined Gallagher from JLT, where she was a main board Director from 2002 to 2013, and held various senior management roles including CEO of Latin America, Chairman of the Captive and Insurance Management business, Group General Counsel and Chairman of JLT’s continental European investments.
