Group Benefit Partners was acquired by AssuredPartners on 12/30/21.
In 2004, Justin accepted a position in Denver, CO as a Regional Sales Representative within MetLife’s Small Market Institutional Sales Organization. Justin’s initial sales territory was Southern Colorado, an area where MetLife needed increased market awareness. In a short 18 months, with a focus on providing the highest level of service possible, Justin was able to turn Southern Colorado into a thriving market for the Denver office and was asked to model his philosophies to develop some under-penetrated areas in the Denver metropolitan area.
After successfully broadening the MetLife market in Denver, Justin was asked to take on the sales responsibilities for MetLife’s Large Market Institutional Sales Organization in Denver, where he represented MetLife to the broker and consultant community in all of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming for their clients with between 500 and 25,000 employees. This large market experience was outstanding exposure to high level benefit conversations with many large employers in the Rocky Mountain Region.
In the summer of 2009, in collaboration with business partner Jerry Koering, Justin, along with his wife Melissa, decided to move back home to Fort Madison to start Group Benefit Partners, an employee benefits agency focused on helping employers maximize the return on the investment created by offering a comprehensive benefits package to their employees.
