Arthur J. Gallagher & Co has acquired Illinois-based Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) for an undisclosed amount.

Commenting on the deal, Arthur chairman president and CEO Patrick Gallagher, Jr said part of HRMS’ success over the years has been their focus on developing a strategic business relationship with their clients.

"Their commitment to delivering the highest quality service, their strong human resource expertise and their solid mid-western presence will be terrific complements to our North Central employee benefit operations," Gallagher added.

As part of the transaction, HRMS’ Dan Rigby will work under the direction of William Ziebell, North Central Regional Executive Vice President of Gallagher’s employee benefit consulting and brokerage operations.

Rigby and his associates will continue to operate in their current location.

HRMS was established in 1997 and is an employee benefit insurance broker that offers a complete range of group employee benefit products and consulting services to their clients across the US.

The company specializes in group health, life, long and short term disability, dental, retirement planning, human resource services and program administration.

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co is an international insurance brokerage and risk management services firm with operations in 17 countries and offers client-service capabilities in over 110 countries across the globe.
