Gradient Financial Group has won the Best Sales and Marketing Team Award from Minnesota’s Twin Cities North Chamber of Commerce.

The award is presented to a business that, within the last 18 months, has implemented a marketing event or campaign that successfully exceeded past performances or industry norms. Gradient, which offers a portfolio of financial products and services to independent financial services professionals, has experienced 30% to 50% growth since opening in 2005.

“We have built very close professional and personal relationships with our advisors that have allowed us to grow our revenue and profits,” says Tami Lucius, president of Gradient Financial Group.

Gradient opened its Shoreview, Minn., office in 2008. It also has offices in Topeka, Kansas.
