When Bruce Kerr and Rod Cruickshank founded The Partners Group, they were a small consulting team focused on serving the employee benefits and individual insurance needs of Oregonians.

Over 30 years later, we have 165+ employees in offices throughout the Pacific Northwest. As one of the largest independent firms in the Northwest, we’ve also expanded our service offering and expertise to include the following (pictured below):

What is the One Partner Advantage?

We’ve been intentional about the direction of our growth. Over the years, we’ve developed teams and services that could more comprehensively support our clients.

Now, we work together across divisions as a fully integrated team of specialists. Our collective expertise ensures we understand our clients’ big picture and can solve their most complex problems as well as strategize for growth.

We call that the One Partner Advantage.

What Does the One Partner Advantage Look Like?

Last year, a prospective client reached out to us for help with their employee benefits. Their business had been part of a larger organization for years but they planned to break out on their own at the start of 2020.

They’d never been responsible for their employee benefits package before, nor had to think about their commercial insurance needs.

We invited them to our office for an informational meeting with several consultants from our Employer Services divisions. Our consultants listened to what they wanted and where they were headed, then provided some education to get them going in the right direction.

The client decided to partner with our Employee Benefits team immediately, and later added us as their Commercial Insurance and Retirement Plan consultants. Together, our team is working to implement comprehensive solutions and develop long-term strategies for growth. Our client appreciates the efficiency and ease of working with several consultants within one organization.
