Putting Our History of Achievement to Work for our Clients

The Northwestern Mutual office in Charlotte serves the Carolinas and Northern Georgia. We are headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Charlotte network office has local offices in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; Greenville, South Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; Columbia, South Carolina and Augusta, Georgia. Richard Worrell, the current Managing Partner, and Jim Worrell, former Managing Partner, have served the Carolinas for over 65 years of combined experience with Northwestern Mutual.

Northwestern Mutual in Charlotte has enhanced the breadth of our service offerings and expanded geographically to include more than 200 financial representatives. Our network office is one of the largest in the Northwestern Mutual system across the country, and is consistently a top provider of life, disability and long-term care insurance, investments, wealth management solutions, annuities, and employee benefits solutions.

Because we are growing along with the Carolinas and Georgia, we are selectively looking to attract and develop high quality, motivated individuals who are committed to building an integrated Northwestern Mutual financial security practice and are dedicated to serving their clients. We continuously support the communities in which we live and serve through the involvement of our local financial representatives and management teams.

Military Veteran Partnership

It was a pleasure being with the Veterans Bridge Home and Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera for the second year in a row at a lunch and learn event to support making veterans and communities stronger together! We are proud to partner with the Veterans Bridge Home as they work to help Charlotte-area Veterans successfully transition home after military service by identifying their education, employment, and healthcare needs and connecting them to available community, state and federal resources.
