Carrying On a Tradition of Service

Independent Partners Group, LLC, was founded by Jerry Mills & Richard Contreras in July, 2002. They were then joined by Colleen Gallagher. The three were veterans of Northern Life Insurance Company and ReliaStar Annuity Sales – Jerry was Northern’s last Executive Vice President, Richard was its last Vice President of Sales, and Colleen was one of the top Marketing Coordinators with Northern and RAL.

Jerry, Richard, and Colleen brought Northern Life’s tradition of solid products, strong compensation, and exceptional service with them to Independent Partners Group. Above all, they brought with them the Northern philosophy, summed up by one simple phrase: The Agent is Our Customer.

It’s an approach to business that asks what we can do for you instead of what you can do for us. That’s why Independent Partners Group is the annuity marketing company designed from the ground up to focus on your needs. And it’s why we’ll help you take your business to new levels.

At Independent Partners Group, The Agent is Our Customer!
