Grant was previously a Field Director of the Missoula office. Below, Grant discusses his introduction to the Northwestern Mutual company and his current thoughts about his postion. 

"I was very lucky to find this career as easily as I did.  I was looking at different opportunities when my (then)  father-in-law suggested I talk with Northwestern Mutual.  He did not own any of their products, but knew, by reputation, what a good company it was.  I contacted the local office and began the testing process.  After my research on the company and contact with them through the testing and licensing process, I felt confident this was the right company for me to work with.  I didn't feel the need to interview with any other company I was very impressed with Northwestern Mutual from a company aspect, and as a consumer.  I wrote my first contract in November of 1991" Grant M. Winn II, CLU®, ChFC®.

"In this career I enjoy the opportunity and freedom of having my own practice.  It allows me to relate on a first hand level to some of the problems and challenges that my clients go through as business owners.  I like the fact that most of my clients are also my friends and family, who have referred and trusted me with their friends and family.  I am in a unique position to help them protect what they feel is important in their lives, and help them realize their financial dreams.  It is a career that is challenging and very rewarding knowing I can have an impact on the lives of the people around me" Grant M. Winn II, CLU®, ChFC®.
