Chris Fugman, CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, CASL®

Disability Income Specialist

“I chose this opportunity for my career change because the Northwestern Mutual was the only financial company that had a success play book.  This play book assures me that my success is based directly on how well I execute the plan.  Other financial companies I interviewed with focused on base salary, licensing and products.  What I have experienced being with Northwestern Mutual for over a year is that the play book is right on.  I have high quality mentors and staff that help me monitor my execution of the play book daily."


Darrin Englebert, CFP®

Financial Advisor

”I chose this career opportunity because I was a client of Scott Schwertfeger’s.  While I managed a successful sales team for another major employer in Milwaukee, Scott and I would share how we would get results from our sales reps.  He introduced me to the play book, The Art and Science of building a Financial Clientele.  I used this book for my sales team and when I decided to switch careers, I was already familiar with the business model.  After interviewing at a number of other financial organizations, I kept coming back to Northwestern Mutual.  Their mentors and support staff allow me to really focus on meeting people and helping them solve their financial security needs.”
