Office Profile

The Richmond Virginia Office has a rich history, with roots dating back to the late 1800's.  Early in 1877, the Home Office of the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company made a decision to locate a general agency in Richmond which would service the entire state of Virginia.  Having full realization of the challenges the agency would encounter, the company spent nearly a year searching for the right man to run the office. 

In late 1877, the Virginia General Agency was offered to and accepted by Colonel John B. Cary, know today as the namesake for Cary Street and our beloved Carytown. The office was located near Richmond's "Shockoe Slip" and it was under his strong leadership that the agency grew from informal gatherings of only a few agents to one of the top performing branches of the company. 

Over 130 years later the Virginia Office of Northwestern Mutual is still proudly serving Richmond and its surrounding communities including Virginia Beach (and the entire Hampton roads area), Roanoke, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Lynchburg, Lexington, Harrisonburg, Staunton, Waynesboro, and the Outer Banks, North Carolina..  In fact, the Richmond office has been recognized as a top 40 opportunity within the company due to market demographics and growth potential.
