In Bob's junior year of college, he attended a job fair and was introduced to the financial services industry. Based on his family background, he became hooked. His grandfather spent 40 years of his career in this industry and his father has already passed the 30 year mark.

Bob continued the family tradition by joining Northwestern Mutual in 1999, initially with The Scott Carr District Network Office in Schaumburg, IL.  He was named Rookie of the Year for the Harry Hoopis Network Office and Scott Carr District Network Office. Bob has obtained MDRT Qualifying Membership from 2005-2013 and Qualifying/Life Membership for 2014 and also spent most of that time in various leadership roles including mentor, recruiting field director and most recently appointed Managing Director in Naperville, IL.

Bob believes financial security is different for every person and it varies throughout life.  Bob looks at the process of achieving financial security as a way to instill confidence that comes from taking action today to provide for tomorrow.  He believes his role with his clients and reps is first, understanding their vision, and then making it come to life.  Bob is currently the Managing Director at Northwestern Mutual in Naperville.
