Northwestern Mutual adding 170 representatives, interns, to DFW offices
Northwestern Mutual is recruiting 86 financial representatives and 85 financial representative interns to its DFW operations this year.
The firm already has 236 financial representatives and financial representative interns in the DFW area. The financial reps are independent contractors.
Northwestern Mutual expects that more than half of its new representatives will be people switching careers, said Lisa Roe, a spokeswoman for the firm.
“We’re seeing an uptick in professionals who are looking for new opportunities to grow in their professional lives,” she said.
Northwestern Mutual has offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, Addison, Allen, Frisco and Irving.
“There is strong demand for holistic financial plans that remain relevant in all conditions,” Roe said. “There have been times in history where people are focused on accumulating wealth, and other times when the economy contracts and people are concerned with protecting their assets – now, we are in a time when people recognize the value of both.”
