Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual, LA-MS
New Orleans Chamber Member Since 2010
“Matching Northwestern Mutual with the Chamber, with its large base of employers…felt like the ideal decision .”
Steven Dugal, CLU, ChFC, LUTCF, CLF is the managing partner for Northwestern Mutual, Louisiana-Mississippi. Over his thirty years at Northwestern, and throughout the last 12 as a managing partner, he’s come to a full understanding of the importance of a robust local business network—which led him to the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce.
Northwestern Mutual’s network covers areas across Louisiana and most of Mississippi, and its network office is also in the region, which compelled Dugal to explore the New Orleans Chamber. Upon looking into it, he found himself extremely impressed with the large membership base (over 1,000 companies strong) and the robust events calendar.
Northwestern Mutual is a financial services firm with a focus on helping clients achieve financial security. Northwestern Mutual works with individual clients on a one-on-one basis to offer life, disability and long-term care insurances that best suit their clients’ needs. They pair these offerings with their services aimed at growing assets for retirement, education and other life events to help their clients to grow towards and continue to thrive in the lifestyles that suit them best. According to Dugal, matching Northwestern Mutual with the Chamber, with its large base of employers, opportunities and membership, felt like the ideal decision.
Dugal has found membership in the Chamber to be productive and, surprisingly, easy. The Chamber makes fitting in and being active simple for its members, providing a large scale and breadth of events to suit member needs across the board through diverse opportunities. What’s more, Dugal says, they serve a membership that looks and feels like the community—which is one of many reasons he is a proud member of the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce.
