About APG

Finding Purpose in Impact


Our mission is to improve lives through thoughtful design.



Our mission to improve lives through thoughtful design began many years ago, when APG’s Managing Partner Justin Cullifer was recruited for a role that would become a life-changing experience. He led a team tasked with addressing national security issues by designing next-generation, innovative technology solutions. Specifically, his team addressed issues identified by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (aka - the 9/11 Commission).

In the years since, Aligned Partner Group (APG) formed as a coalition of like-minded solution architects, designers and innovators. APG applies the same sense of urgency when designing for other industries as well. From decreasing a bank’s timeframe to issue small business loans, to enabling a life insurance company to significantly increase the number of clients it serves through an original mobile-first sales platform, the team at APG always finds ways to make an impact.

Our Team

The APG team are experts at facilitating the process of generating ideas, maturing ideas into viable concepts, and maturing concepts into products and services. We are realists who understand our clients’ need for speed and agility, wrapped in a shared sense of urgency. APG’s designers and solution architects make ideas well-understood by all stakeholders - business and technical. APG’s analysts fully vet designs with all necessary supporting requirements, rules and policies.

We leverage a network of strategic, well-vetted partners to extend our offerings. Where APG’s core team includes designers, solution architects and product management experts, we have the ability to bring in specialists for our clients’ unique or infrequent needs.
