Chris Beach is the Regional Manager for Gallagher’s Health & Welfare practice. Based in Richmond, Virginia, Chris is responsible for introducing Gallagher Better WorksSM to Virginia employers.

Chris believes that developing the right employee benefit program is just a part of solving the business challenges an employer may have. Finding and executing on the right allocation of resources to create the programs an employer needs to recruit, retain and engage their teams is essential to moving organizations forward towards their overall mission. Chris liaises with potential clients to help decipher what success means to them and works to deploy Gallagher resources to fit their needs.

Chris began his career with a regional health plan, based out of their Richmond office. This led to his opening an employee benefits agency, specializing in engineering companies. An opportunity to sell that agency to a Top 20 insurance agency, led to a role overseeing their Virginia Employee Benefits practice.
