Gallagher’s Boise Branch History
Our story in Boise began over 20 years ago when a few individuals came together to create an employee benefits-focused consulting firm with the aspiration to help employers in Idaho control the cost of their benefits, and attract and retain their employees. This desire to help led to significant growth and positioned us as the largest employee benefits firm in the state. Since our startup roots, our Boise branch has grown from a three person office to a staff of 19 highly qualified professionals, and continues to grow in order to facilitate our expanding client services.
