Joseph Pitterle

Financial Representative

Joe joined the Northwestern Mutual team in August 2012.  He previously worked in IT as a Systems Administrator.  He has known Jim since he was 8 years old, when he became a client.  As an adult, Jim recommended that Joe meet with his recruiter.  Joe says that the "Northwestern Mutual name spoke for itself and the opportunity to take care of others, like I was taken care of, was a huge driver of appeal".  As a new Financial Representative, Joe accomplished the Pacesetter First 40 and Second 60 in the 2012-2013 Awards Year.  Joe is most satisfied with the financial flexibility for his family and future, all while helping others take care of theirs.

Cindy Marie Taylor

Financial Representative

Cindy joined the Northwestern Mutual team in August of 2013.  She previously worked in Advertising and Sales for Dominion Enterprises/For Rent Media Solutions, but she was seeking a position that was more flexible.  She had a 1 year old daughter and wanted to shift to a career outside of  "Corporate America".  The Financial Representative role appealed to her because she loved working with people, and she wanted to make a difference in their lives.  Cindy had the chance to join the Northwestern Mutual team and work with others who shared that same desire.  She says that the most rewarding part of her career now is "the impact she is making on everyone she meets".
