Scott R Evans, CLU®

Financial Advisor
Office 847-291-5002

Scott began his career with the Northwestern Mutual in July of 2005. Prior to this career, he worked on the trading floor at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange trading equity options. Scott was never passionate about what he was doing there and eventually started looking elsewhere. In his next career he wanted three things: an entrepreneurial spirit, great training and a company that had a best in class product offerings. Those are the reasons that he was intrigued by Northwestern Mutual - Chicago. Scott was confident that with hard work, people skills and the ability to learn from others at an early stage he could make this career change work.
