50 Years of Healthcare Professional Insurance Leadership
Founded by the late Dale Brunken in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1969, Medical Group Insurance Services (MGIS) has carved out an enduring niche as the innovative leader in disability income-replacement insurance marketplace for physicians and dentists.
Across five decades, MGIS has maintained its leading edge through ongoing innovation and an unrelenting focus on anticipating market trends—meeting and exceeding the insurance expectations of healthcare professionals.
The company’s early years were a test of faith and endurance for Dale. He stayed true to his vision of utilizing technology to increase efficiency, more precise underwriting attuned to the evolving market, and responsive localized sales and service.
Within several years, Dale’s vision and integrity found purchase. The company achieved profitability and became the leader in disability insurance for group-practice physicians. Since then, through sweeping changes in the insurance marketplace, MGIS has never looked back.
Dale, the quintessential swashbuckling entrepreneur, died in 2005, leaving a more than 35-year legacy of leadership and operational excellence for the next generation of MGIS leaders to build on.
Current chief executive Jeff Brunken has worked relentlessly to build a team of dynamic specialists throughout the organization, from sales to information technology, distribution and underwriting. As MGIS enters the second half of its first century in business, the company has the dynamic leaders, unity and talent to expand its market leadership and impact.
