Tim Gallagher ’87

Balance, discipline and dedication make Tim Gallagher an Iron Man in his commercial insurance career and in his personal life.

Gallagher, senior vice president of business insurance at Golden Valley-based Marsh McLennan Agency’s Upper Midwest division, is a community builder who devotes himself to his family, church and community while excelling professionally and personally.

Gallagher ushered for more than a decade at Edina’s Christ Presbyterian Church, where he also volunteers at camps to help foster high school students’ spiritual development. He and his wife Susan have dedicated more than 15 years on the church’s Family Fest Ministries board.

Gallagher served as commissioner of Plymouth/Wayzata baseball and coached basketball and baseball for more than a decade. He pushed his own athletic boundaries by training for the Wisconsin Iron Man competition in his 50s and still hits the pool at 5:30 a.m. to swim laps as part of his routine. 

As one nominator put it, “In a world driven by compulsion, Tim values and cultivates balance in his life, which coincidentally increases the likelihood that he is able to serve others in need providing such services as lawn care, home maintenance and housing while simultaneously nurturing family life and encouraging family participation.”
