Northwestern Mutual is honoring Elmhurst Wealth Management Advisor Chad Michael McQuade with membership in its 2013 Forum group, which recognizes individuals for an outstanding year of helping clients achieve financial security. McQuade is affiliated with The McTigue Financial Group based in Oak Brook. This is the third time that McQuade 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," says 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 Chad to plan for their future financial security."
The honorees were recognized at a conference held on November 3 to 6, 2013, in Scottsdale, AZ. At the conference, honorees learned new insights from prominent speakers, gained access to advanced training and leadership development, and shared 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.
"I am proud of the success of our team, and how financial advisors such as Chad, continue to raise the bar by attaining the highest levels of achievement," said John W. McTigue, Managing Partner of Northwestern Mutual's McTigue Financial Group in Chicago. "Moreover, their continued dedication to growing personally and professionally demonstrates our unique corporate culture and steadfast commitment to doing what is best for our clients, our staff, and our communities."
