Every year, Gallagher Bassett (GB) hosts the GB Awards - a celebration of our people and a chance to stop and reflect on the amazing work they do each and every day.
Craig Furness, GB New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, said:
“I’m so proud of the way our people genuinely care and provide support for our clients, customers and each other. Our annual GB Awards program is an opportunity to stop and reflect on the achievements of our team members and the impact they make on our community.
I’d like to congratulate all our nominees, finalists and winners – each of you went above and beyond in demonstrating The Gallagher Way. The judges and executive team had a tough job selecting the winners from such a high quality pool of nominations.
Tena koe, ka pai te mahi.”
There are five categories in the GB NZ Awards:
- Team of the Year
- Leader of the Year
- The Gallagher Way Award

When asked about what he enjoys most about his role, Marc remarked:
“I really enjoy the variety of my role – every day brings unique challenges and opportunities. I’m fortunate to be part of an organisation that treats us like family.
I love working with people – those in my team as well as our customers. I feel fortunate to work with such a talented team, providing support and guidance and I enjoy being part of their growth and development.
