Local Atlanta Network . . . Expert Guidance

A Legacy of Success

Northwestern Mutual has been part of the fabric of communities like Atlanta for nearly 160 years.  In addition to providing a wide variety of world-class financial products, services, solutions and expertise, the Northwestern Mutual Buckhead team of financial representatives are residents who understand and share the values and ideals of this community. With offices in the Buckhead and Midtown neighborhoods of Atlanta, Peachtree Corners, Tyrone and Macon, our 100+ representatives know the local environment in which companies operate and what it takes to succeed. Representatives work locally but have all the resources of the entire network behind them to help you prepare for your future. The focus always is on you.


Connecting with People

Our business is about connecting with people. Financial security is a very personal subject, so most people want to work with a financial representative they feel comfortable with and can rely upon; someone who understands what’s important to them as well as their current and future needs.

As part of Northwestern Mutual, our financial representatives have exclusive access to a wide range of quality products and services, including life insurance, disability income insurance, education-funding alternatives, retirement solutions, estate and business planning analysis.  They are ready to work alongside you to address the specifics of your financial needs whether that involves accumulating or preserving wealth, creating an estate plan or ensuring that future generation can benefit from your success.  They stand ready to help you manage financial risk and achieve financial security in today’s complex world.

Guided by the leadership of Managing Partner John Wright II, our team has set a standard for excellence not only for Northwestern Mutual but also for the financial services industry.  They are veterans, seasoned professionals, but they are also parents and care-taking children, coaches, carpool drivers, homework heroes, soup kitchen volunteers, Peachtree Road Racers -- they understand what it is to want to take care of our community and our families to ensure their long-term financial well-being.  This shared understanding is key to building trust and the kind of long-term relationships that are paramount to growing financial security. 

Get to know our team and allow us the chance to get to know you.
