Nicole Winton | Director of Recruitment and Selection

I help people learn more about how a career as a Northwestern Mutual  representative can provide the rewards and opportunities of self-employment -- flexibility, having a positive impact on people’s lives, and virtually unlimited earning potential.
As a financial representative, you have all the advantages of being in business for yourself, but you’re not alone. Northwestern Mutual will help you develop your business and marketing plans, provide extensive training and coaching from certified trainers, and offer access to the Network’s knowledgeable group of financial professionals to help you launch your career.

Northwestern Mutual views the recruiting and selection of financial representatives as a mutual selection process. The office evaluates a candidate’s potential for success as a financial representative. At the same time, the candidate evaluates the office’s ability to support each individual’s professional and financial goals. When everything aligns, you have a "mutual fit."

My goal is always to recruit the right person, at the right time, for the right reasons.


Northwestern Mutual financial representatives have the opportunity to determine their own financial futures while making an impact on others.
