The origins of The Centennial Group can be traced back to Lansing, Michigan in 1967 when it was founded as a financial services firm under the name Creamer and Associates.
In 1976, the founder purchased an old Centennial Farm House to serve as the company's headquarters. As the year marked the country's Bi-Centennial, the founder decided to rename the firm The Centennial Group, inspired by the name given to farms that had been run by the same family for 100 years. Today, more than 50 years later, The Centennial Group remains a thriving financial services provider, dedicated to serving the Midwest with the same long-standing commitment as its namesake founders did in the last century
The firm started out by offering life insurance to families and small businesses as a means of mitigating risks.
In 1990, we founded our own Broker-Dealer, Centennial Financial Services, to cater to the investment needs of the same demographic. In 1996, we expanded our investment offerings to include Investment Advice and established Centennial Investment Planning. In 2007, we ventured into the world of Employee Benefits Consulting and founded Centennial Employee Benefits, with a focus on serving small to medium-sized businesses. As our firm continued to grow, we sought a more comprehensive approach to compliance and subsequently sold our Broker-Dealer and Investment Advisory practices in 2006. We moved our relationships to Principal Securities, Inc. in 2013.
In 2020 we're “Celebrating our Past while Inspiring the Future”. The leadership team is most proud of the firm's ability to grow and develop people who have a legacy of service to so many individuals and businesses. Our sincere desire is for our clients to recommend us heartedly.
