Chris Rourke of Springfield has joined Arthur J Gallagher & Co. as an insurance advisor.

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. is a global insurance broker with offices in 130 countries. The company acquired Nicoud Insurance Services in March, and the Springfield office of Nicoud remains at the same location. It is managed by area senior vice president Jim Hillestad and area vice president Tim Nicoud Jr.

“Our landscape is changing and risk is not as easy to control as in years past, products such as intellectual property and cyber/data breach are changing the climate in which our clients operate their businesses,” Rourke said. “AJG is an innovative company that uses a proactive approach instead of reactive.”

This article has been corrected to specify that Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. has offices in 130 countries, not companies. It has also been altered to clarify that Nicoud Insurance Services is now part of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
