Associates

Our financial representatives have an incredible opportunity to positively impact people’s lives - the lives of their clients, their families and those in their communities. They take this responsibility seriously and so do we. We provide them with the training and support they need to ensure their success, but we know it is their productive work ethic, strong relationship skills and professionalism that make them extraordinary.

After my graduation from Cornell College in 1970 and graduate work at the University of Iowa in 1971, my best source of employment came from my pastor. He recommended that I speak to a Northwestern Mutual General Agent by the name of William C. Roeder. The last 30 years have been a blur, but I am glad I followed that early advice.

My career as a Retirement and Pension Specialist with Northwestern Mutual is really a continuation of, and draws upon, my previous work experiences:

1979 – 1991: Ernst & Young (and predecessor firms)
Partner in charge of financial services consulting - Midwest region

1991 – 2000: Corus Bank (and predecessor banks)
President, Aetna Bank
Chairman, Bancorp Operations Company
EVP and Chief Operating Officer, Corus Bank

2000 – 2002: Cole Taylor Bank
Group Senior Vice President, Trust Dept.
Retirement Plans Business Unit

My background has given me the opportunity to become knowledgeable in retirement analysis, and also to understand the corporate environment while relating to the needs of individual employees. I am, by nature, a facilitator, a knowledge–sharer and a teacher, with a great deal of enthusiasm. This is ideally suited to my role here at Northwestern Mutual.
