"This rebranding clarifies who we are to those we serve, which includes individuals and businesses in the greater Chicago area, with offices in Lombard, Vernon Hills, Elgin, Skokie in the North Shore, and downtown in Chicago's West Loop."
The Northwestern Mutual – Greater Chicago office has a rich history in the greater Chicago area and boasts a long list of distinguished advisors. Two of the most notable advisors hailing from the Greater Chicago network office include John O. Todd, Sr., who created the first-ever non-qualified executive benefit plan in 1957, and Alan Nero, the famed sports agent and current Managing Director for the baseball division of Octagon, the top agency in global baseball placement. Nero is credited with developing innovative ways to insure athletes and help them bridge the financial gap between team assignments.
"Our network office has a big history behind our new big name," said Goris. "We continue to grow and are recruiting financial representatives that go on to build distinguished careers to impact clients and the communities they serve. We also recruit college students for our nationally-ranked Top 10 internship program and look forward to continuing to live up to the standards of excellence that precede us by continuing to do the right things for the people who put their trust in us."
