It all started with Skip Wingate.
Skip established Mutual Protective Services in 1968 as an insurance brokerage firm. By 1999, the company had grown to 300 active agents. Upon retirement, Skip passed the company to Mike Wingate and Tom Schueth who rebranded the company as Premier Senior Marketing®. Premier Senior Marketing quickly grew – adding additional divisions, expanding beyond the Senior Marketing label and eventually serving over 28,000 agents in all 50 states.
OVER 50 YEARS
Premier has been the go-to business partner for insurance agents over 50 years. Skip Wingate established Midwest Regional Services in 1968 as an insurance brokerage firm. Today we serve over 21,400 active agents in all 50 states.
The Transition to Premier Companies®
In 2012, Mike and Tom created the Premier Companies® umbrella to cover all 5 divisions: Premier Senior Marketing, Premier Life & Annuities, Premier LTC Brokerage, Premier Planning and Premier National Benefits. These dynamic divisions ensured that agents could turn to Premier Companies for all their insurance needs.
In an effort to streamline products and agent support, Premier Companies united all divisions in 2017 and rebranded the company to become Premier Marketing. With a full-service staff, Premier is able to provide the highest level of back room support to over 36,000 individual agents as well as to some of the foremost agencies across the United States. Premier bridges the gap between agents and companies allowing the producer to focus on serving clients. Our personalized, individual approach to our producers combined with our extensive industry knowledge and superior service levels make Premier unique. Our producers rely on us and we deliver, every time.
