About UsTeri and Tom Gunness
Gunness Benefits Group is a business-to-consumer insurance agency for all Oregon residents. Gunness Benefits Group was founded by Teri Gunness in 2010. Teri grew up in a blue collar family and, after earning her M.S.W. degree, spent time in the mental health field. After that, she worked as an insurance agent for more than 28 years.

Teri's varied and extensive background makes her uniquely skilled at listening to and understanding her clients' needs, and her passion for her work shines through in the thoughtful manner with which she handles her clients. Some of her original clients are still with her to this day – or she works with their children!

Tom Gunness has been working in the insurance field since Gunness Benefits Group first opened their doors in the spring of 2010. Prior to becoming an insurance agent, Tom was a full time student earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Oregon State University in 2009. He is focused primarily on the employee benefits field as this seems to be one of the most pressing topics in our modern lives. For the past three years, Tom has been a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors and recently started working towards obtaining his Life Underwriter Training Council designation.

At Gunness Benefits Group, our priority is ensuring that our clients make informed decisions about their insurance needs. That's why we advocate for them with insurance companies and take their thoughts and concerns seriously.

We really care about our clients and consider many of them our friends.
