Britton Gallagher Acquires Wisconsin Agency

November 1, 2012 No Comments

Britton Gallagher has acquired Beckman Insurance Agency of Wisconsin. The acquisition is part of the firm’s strategic growth plan in the amusement industry.
“This purchase clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the (amusement) industry,” said Drew Tewksbury, vice president and program manager of Britton Gallagher’s amusement insurance program.
Beckman Insurance Agency has been serving the family entertainment center (FEC) industry for over 28 years. “As part of my succession plan, I needed to find a company that has the same dedication to customer service that we have built our reputation on, Britton Gallagher was an obvious choice,” said Mike Beckman, former owner of Beckman Insurance Agency.
Britton Gallagher owns and operates Amusement Insurance Resources (A.I.R.), a specialty insurance program focused on the amusement industry. In January 2012, A.I.R. expanded offerings to include products specifically for the FEC market.
The business will continue to operate under the name Beckman Insurance Agency through the transition period. “The insurance industry is very relationship based and we plan to take our time getting to know each client and how we can help them,” Tewksbury said.
