PS Intermountain provides full-service insurance and estate planning for consumers in Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Nevada. The new entity will exclusively market Omega IM, the only life insurance premium finance company that uses commercial real estate as collateral. Omega IM is known for its unique ability to help clients see beyond traditional debt restructuring programs and create new lending opportunities for commercial real estate, construction, purchases and refinancing. “The breadth and depth of PS Intermountain offerings is unmatched in this industry,” said Dr. Timothy Fussell, Founder and CEO of Partners South Estate Planning. “Dearden’s strengths coupled with Partners South Estate Planning products and Omega IM Group offerings position this alliance as a true financial force in the market.”

PS Intermountain will be led by Eric Dearden, youngest son of Dearden founders, Daniel and Sandy. “Eric is a bright young man who brings industry experience, expertise, and a ‘customers first’ focus to the table,” Dr. Fussell said. “He has an easy leadership style that embraces our core business values and strategic direction – we are lucky to have him leading the charge,” Fussell added. 

Putting the young Dearden at the helm of PS Intermountain was an easy choice for Fussell. Dearden’s competitive spirit and engaging leadership style was a direct derivative of university-level basketball where he learned the importance of playing hard and playing to win. “Like basketball, this business is all about understanding the customer’s end goal and working together as a single unit to get there,” Dearden said. “We’re excited to be an extension of the Partners South Estate Planning and Omega IM Group team. I’m looking forward to many great seasons ahead for all our customers and advisors.”

Dearden & Associates began as an employment benefits agency and quickly blossomed into a full-service Employee Benefits, Human Resources and Personal Lines agency with division-dedicated specialists. Dearden’s customer-focused solutions-driven philosophy is exactly what resonated with Partners South & Omega IM Group when they sought partners to expand their estate planning and financial services. “Building PS Intermountain with this talented and seasoned group of professionals increases the opportunities and possibilities we can provide our advisors and clients,” Fussell said. “This grouping of estate planning, insurance, and lending products supports and enhances our commitment to our customers’ short and long term financial freedoms.”
