Our History

Gallagher’s history of consulting on executive benefits extends more than twenty years. Our firm was established by Rich Brock and Chris Burns-Fazzi in 1995 as Benmark East. In 2005, we became Burns-Fazzi, Brock and Associates and turned our focus to tax-exempt organizations. After building a national portfolio of clients, the firm added a third principal, Tom Telford.

We attribute much of our continued success to the high level of service we provide our clients. Given the long-term nature of a benefit plan, our three principals wanted to ensure we would continue to service these plans well into the future and began seeking a compatible merger partner. In 2015, following years of vetting potential partners to find the perfect match of values, culture, and stability, the firm was acquired by Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (NYSE: AJG), one of the world’s largest insurance brokerage and risk management firms. Now Gallagher, the firm continues to consult on executive benefits in multiple industries across the country.
