Daniel Launder

Insurance broker Gallagher has appointed Daniel Launder as branch director for its Chester office.

Daniel is responsible for heading up Gallagher’s 16-strong Chester team, based on Boughton, which looks after the insurance and risk management requirements for a broad range of clients in Cheshire, North Wales and Merseyside, from SMEs and private clients to large corporates.

Daniel joins Gallagher after three years at Marsh Commercial, where he was Client Executive.

Daniel succeeds former Branch Director Steve Lowe, who retired in July after leading the team for 21 years.

Meanwhile, Samantha Argyle, who has been part of the Chester team for 18 years, has been promoted to Account Executive.

Daniel Launder, Chester Branch Director, Gallagher, comments: “Cheshire is one of the UK’s largest and most historical industrial hubs, and is home to a whole host of ambitious and thriving businesses, with a particularly strong representation in engineering, energy, agriculture, as well as professional services.

“With businesses in the region facing uncertain times, it’s important we’re on hand to support them with navigating a challenging risk management landscape. I’m delighted to be taking the helm of Gallagher’s Chester office, and look forward to working with the wider team to grow our already impressive portfolio of clients.”
