Cindy Brunner, who has been an integral part of the Oregon insurance community for nearly three decades. She began her industry career on the carrier side with American States Insurance Company in their Portland office out of high school. After kicking off her career with American States, Cindy joined Imperial PFS in 1996.

Cindy was not just a colleague of so many at IPFS; she was a cherished member of the IPFS team and industry community, whose dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to excellence left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of working with and knowing her.

Her leadership, wisdom, and boundless enthusiasm were truly inspirational and instrumental in shaping the company’s success over the years. During her career, Cindy consistently exemplified the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and compassion. Her contributions were invaluable, and her presence will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
