Meet Dennis J. Cunningham II - Regional Sales Director at Midland National

“Being a born and raised New Yorker and a veteran of the Marines (USMC), I’ve been called straightforward. Our region’s family of producers loves it and this is why. I’m not a wholesaler or a failed producer; I’m a Regional Sales Director. This ‘across the table’ proven experience allows me to partner with other successful insurance and investment professionals with first-hand knowledge of the business.”
Partners, Dennis Cunningham and Micah Frankel work together with financial professionals throughout Southern California to add life insurance revenues to their practice with real death protection benefits for their clients. They share results-driven concepts and sales ideas with their region’s partner professionals. The tools they offer can help financial professionals have more fun, make more money and allow them more free time.
“We know what works. Our continued success comes from our ability to help producers grow their knowledge, planning skills, sales skills, increase the effectiveness of the financial strategies they design, further develop the appreciation and referrals received from appreciative clients….and as a result, grow their income.”

About Dennis

Dennis serves as Regional Sales Director for Midland National, supporting producers throughout Southern California, since 2007. Partnering with Dennis and Micah is one way a financial professional can grow his or her revenue. There are plenty of wholesalers and/or marketing groups that can talk about a product, run illustrations and send you some paperwork. But at the end of the day, a quote, some forms and/or contracting doesn’t make a client walk in your door or help you close more business. However, proven sales ideas, networking techniques, business planning, referral and introduction techniques, sales systems and marketing plans can and do make a real impact to a successful financial professional’s bottom line! That’s exactly what top producers describe as the real added value in working with Dennis and Micah and their Regional Office.


Dennis started with Midland National as a General Agent in 2002 before becoming a Regional Sales Director. Prior to joining Midland National, he served in the Marines (USMC) as a Sergeant from 1993-1998. Dennis also served as an OSJ/Compliance Officer for Royal Alliance from 1999-2001 and subsequently at Precision Wealth from 2001 to 2009. Dennis has received multiple “RSD of the Year” and other awards at Midland National.
