Managing Director


My Mission

 "To help enrich the lives of my clients through alignment of their financial actions with their core values."


A Message from Managing Director, John Dawson

I joined the financial services industry to help people build a brighter future. Many people have a reluctance to save money and plan their finances. For most individuals, saving does not come naturally; forgoing consumption today to invest for tomorrow is often not a top priority. Therefore, it is not surprising many Americans spend more time each year planning their vacation than reviewing their long-term financial strategy.

My relentless focus and follow-up on risk management, including life and disability insurance, investments, education funding, and retirement planning helps my clients build a better tomorrow, today. Read more about John Dawson's Areas of Expertise .

Planning for Financial Security

Northwestern Mutual Childhood Cancer Program

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under 15 years of age, and children receiving treatment for cancer spend many days, months and even years in the hospital. As part of the Northwestern Mutual Childhood Cancer Program, Northwestern Mutual-Crown Point donated a Starlight Fun Center® mobile entertainment unit and Starlight Tablet to improve the life and health of pediatric patients at Franciscan St. Anthony Health- Crown Point.
