Meet Our Team


Larry E. Gustafson - President/Owner

Larry graduated from Illinois State University in 1983 with a BS in Finance.  He worked as a Mortgage broker until 1989 when he started his own individual health insurance brokerage agency.  Since then he has completed a MBA at Arizona State University and held numerous professional designations including Registered Health Underwriter and Registered Employee Benefits Consultant.

He was President of the Arizona Association of Health Underwriters in 1995 and held numerous other chair positions in that organization. Being a small business owner, there have been numerous challenges along the way, but just recently Larry celebrated his 30 year anniversary in business.

Larry has built his business with his reputation, and has never believed in the mass marketing of insurance products.  Each and every customer is important to him, and he has always believed in the motto that if you take care of your clients, they will take care of you.  Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Larry E. Gustafson, Inc. has become “Senior Market Exclusive,” so we pride ourselves on being a specialized agency bringing our Medicare-eligible customers top quality service.
