Meet Marty

Just as I need to get to know you before I can present options appropriate for you and your family, you have every right to know about me. After all, along with a personal financial plan, we will be working together to build a long-term relationship you and your family can rely on for years to come.

My Proudest Achievements

I am proud and excited that in 2020, I’ll be celebrating my 40th year with Northwestern Mutual. Over the years, I’ve developed deep expertise in retirement planning, investments, and long-term care planning. I feel that long-term care is an essential component of every plan. Without it, even the best financial plans are vulnerable.

I know how devastating a debilitating health issue can be on a family - my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's when she was 60. Without long-term care insurance, my parents had no choice but to pay for mom's care out of pocket for the next 17 years. This had a deep emotional and financial impact on our family.

For this reason, I'm passionate about sharing my expertise with clients and helping to educate others on the intracasies of legacy planning. As one of the company's leading Long Term Care Specialists in the country, I regularly accept invitations to speak to fellow colleagues, family organizations, groups of health care providers and industry leaders on this important topic. If you would like me to join your organization's upcoming conference or meeting, please contact us.

  • Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Knox College
  • Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation. This designation is a valued educational credential for life insurance professionals.
  • Certified in Long Term Care (CLTC) designation. CLTC certification is a professional designation that ensures professionals understand the continuum of care, housing, and services that individuals need to live a long life. I not only understand the product but, more importantly, how to personalize a solution for each client's long-term care needs.
  • The Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation focuses on the comprehensive financial planning process as an organized way to collect and analyze information on each client's entire financial situation; to identify and establish specific financial goals; and to formulate, implement, and monitor a comprehensive plan to achieve those goals. The ChFC program provides financial services professionals, like me, with in-depth knowledge of the skills needed to perform comprehensive financial planning for their clients.

Personal Life

My wife, Cathy, and I raised our two children in Vernon Hills, IL. Our daughter, Carly, is married and lives in Indianapolis. Our son, Joel, now lives in Los Angeles.

When we became empty nesters, we moved into the city of Chicago, the perfect spot for an avid Chicago Cubs fan! We live on the near north side, in the Bucktown neighborhood. It’s the ideal location to enjoy city living with all the visual stimulation it provides. We also appreciate its parks, rich history, and beautiful skyline—all of which my wife and I enjoy. I also find it inspires my need to tell stories as a hobbyist screenwriter.
