Northwestern Mutual has moved its Chicagoland headquarters to a newly renovated, modern location in Downers Grove. The transition was made in an effort to provide ample space for the continued growth of the firm, while providing a contemporary workspace that encapsulates their fast-paced, inclusive culture.

To celebrate the official opening of this space, an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday, April 24th. Advisors and staff from throughout the Chicagoland area had a chance to tour the new space with families, clients, community members and friends.

Ryan Kramer, managing partner for Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland is very excited for the new space and its representation of their values and culture. “We are able to showcase each department and team within our network office, while including elements of our core values, recognition displays of the great work that has been done by our people, and elements of our company’s over 160 years of rich history.”

The event was well attended, with over 125 guests and family members coming to see the finished space. Ryan Kramer also stated that this will be the home to this network for the next ten years.

The Downers Grove office is the main network office for the Kramer Financial Group, which includes Downers Grove, Naperville, Schaumburg, and Chicago. Later this year, the Chicago office will be moving to a new space as well, allowing ample room for the growth that will continue within the agency.

Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland has one hundred twenty Financial Representatives in addition to a network of twelve specialists, offering a broad range of products and services to help clients plan for their financial futures.
