Mark Barnes joined Northwestern Mutual in 1996 right after graduating from the University of Findlay.

What Mark enjoys most about being a Financial Representative is helping his clients achieve financial security through a thorough planning process that incorporates their retirement, college savings, and estate planning goals for the future.

But, before Mark can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, he needs to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know him.
