 Geoff A Stalker

Geoff A Stalker, CLU®, ChFC®, CRPS®

Wealth Management Advisor
geoff.stalker@nm.com

 Geoff stumbled into the qualified plan market a little over 3 years ago following a departure of the existing retirement plan specialist, which left Geoff with 3 plans to service. Since then he has increased that to 24 plans (as of June 15, 2012).

I saw an opportunity to specialize in an area that no one in our office had expertise in, myself included. I opened up my horizons by allowing every wholesaler to meet and educate me along the way. That, coupled with some tremendous resources at the Home Office, has significantly led to my overall success. From that, I have been able to develop a very unique service model that is participant focused for overall plan success. I want our model to have a very different look and feel than the typical funds, fees and fiduciary focus of the rest of our competitors.

Recently, I was invited to partake in a monthly BRM study group conference call with my NM peer qualified plan experts.  Here we are able to information share at a higher level. They say that intelligence is learning from your own mistakes, but wisdom is learning from the mistakes of others. My goal is to be the best there is in this market.

Geoff has represented Northwestern Mutual for 15 years. He is a consistent MDRT level producer. He serves as the FRA field delegate for the RPS Financial Group and is acting Treasurer for the local NAIFA-Wichita association. He has 3 children and is happily married to his college sweetheart.
