Northwestern Mutual is honoring Chattanooga financial representative John Sterner, CFP with membership in its 2013 Forum group, which  recognizes individuals for an outstanding year of helping clients achieve financial security. Mr. Sterner is affiliated with Northwestern Mutual based in Chattanooga. This is the fourth time that Mr. Sterner has received the Forum honor.

“Our 2013 Planning & Progress study shows that half (51%) of Americans feel less financially secure than they thought they’d be at this point in their lives,” said Northwestern Mutual Executive Vice President Todd M. Schoon, CLU, ChFC, J.D.  “In an uncertain economy, consumers are seeking guidance and are turning to experienced financial professionals like John to plan for their future financial security.”

The honorees will be recognized at a conference held on November 3 to 6, 2013, in Scottsdale, AZ.  At the conference, honorees will learn new insights from prominent speakers, gain access to advanced training and leadership development, and share knowledge with fellow colleagues.  The Forum conference is an extremely exclusive achievement, with approximately five percent of Northwestern Mutual’s more than 6,500 financial representatives invited to attend.
