Northwestern Mutual’s D.C. Area Offices Seek to Add 51 Financial Representatives in 2014

January 30, 2014 – Northwestern Mutual aims to add 51 financial representatives and 20 financial representative interns this year at its Washington, D.C., metropolitan region offices in the District of Columbia, Fairfax, McLean and Reston. The effort is part of Northwestern Mutual’s nationwide goal to recruit a record-setting 6,400 financial professionals in 2014.

Northwestern Mutual is actively growing its field force to keep pace with growing demand locally for financial security guidance, products and services. Local demand reflects the need nationwide, with research showing 63 percent of Americans believe their overall financial planning needs improvement and half have no plan in place, according to the 2013 Planning and Progress Study.

“We’re seeing a need across all ages for a tailored planning approach to asset protection, growth and savings,” said Leo Tucker, the Managing Partner of Northwestern Mutual’s offices in the D.C. area. “Our recruiting efforts are a direct result of that demand.”

Tucker added that when people are looking for guidance, Northwestern Mutual’s history of financial strength and industry-leading dividends offers clients a strong, reliable foundation.

Northwestern Mutual expects more than half of new financial representatives in 2014 will be “career changers” – professionals who believe they have reached the ceiling in their current occupation and are looking for an opportunity to grow.

“Individuals are hungry for financial guidance, and for those with the right background, now is an ideal time to pursue a career in financial planning,” Tucker said. “We find new financial representatives who are motivated by the rewards Northwestern Mutual offers and our commitment to helping people realize their financial goals.” He added that Northwestern Mutual’s recruiting objective this year in the Washington region is a “big part of our leadership development strategy.”
