Gary Heuer, Partner and Owner of Pinnacle Financial Partners, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership as an insurance and financial professional.
Overcoming a tumultuous upbringing, Mr. Heuer has built an accomplished career in financial services. After the unfortunate passing of both his younger brother and his father, his mother filed for bankruptcy, and took a young Mr. Heuer with her to Germany. Mr. Heuer found the language barrier difficult for his education and returned to the United States, eventually settling with his brother in Portland, Oregon, where he found employment and bought a house. At age 19, he joined the U.S. Army, serving three years as a military police officer in Germany and earning his GED before receiving an honorable discharge. Upon completing his military service, Mr. Heuer attended Portland Community College, earning an Associate of Arts, and began his career as an insurance and financial professional in 1988.
From 1988 to 2016, Mr. Heuer served as a financial associate at Thrivent Financial. He was named to the company’s Hall of Fame in 2009, and in 2016 he began as a partner and the owner of Pinnacle Financial Partners, where he continues to provide financial services currently. Motivated by the financial struggles he and his family faced, he considers his career to be his life’s mission as he loves helping others and strives to make sure his clients are prepared for their futures. He attributes his success to his compassion for others. In recognition of his excellence, Mr. Heuer was the recipient of the National Quality Award, and was named to the Top of the Table by the Million Dollar Round Table in 2019. He is the author of his memoir, “A Determined Spirit,” which explores the struggles and difficulties he faced in his upbringing.
