Susan Freeman, CLU®, ChFC®Susan Freeman

Financial Advisor
(404) 846-3019
 

After building a stellar career at Northwestern Mutual that included honors like being recognized for the highest level of client satisfaction for more than a decade and lifetime membership in the Million Dollar Round Table, Susan Freeman decided to make a major change.  In 2011, she chose to take all she had learned in her 30+ years as a leader in the financial services industry and focus her efforts on ensuring women are involved in financial planning. Susan explains, "My work is about empowering women to take the lead and to be actively involved in decision-making that is critical to ensuring their long-term financial well-being as well as those most important to them."

Susan's success has been recognized with several top honors including membership in The Forum Group (honoring the top 5% of Northwestern Mutual's more than 7,000 financial representatives), the 2002 Atlanta Roots and Wings Award (celebrating the "whole" person), and the Big 008 (recognizing the top 8 of more than 100 advisors on the Goodwin/Wright team).

Community service is also a priority for Susan, and she actively supports outstanding organizations like youthSpark, Caron Treatment Centers, International Rescue Committee and Childspring International. Susan is also an avid fan of yoga, cycling, hiking and travel, especially when it involves her family -- her two children, Anna and Walker, and her husband Don.

Paul D King

Paul D King, CFP®

Office 404-846-3616

Originally from Michigan, Paul King made the transition from the West Coast to join our team at Goodwin Wright/Northwestern Mutual in Atlanta in 2013. He brings more than 16 years of experience in the planning industry, and his repeated success may be credited to the global perspective he cultivated in Investor Relations for Deutsche Asset Management in Chicago. What Paul appreciates most about his work at Northwestern Mutual is the chance to be part of a "go to" team that helps clients coordinate their efforts so that they can meet their goals and accomplish their dreams. As Paul explains, "Every person walks into our offices with a different dream, and our work is to get them there." He adds, "Yes, we will be there for the great moments -- the college graduations, buying a vacation home or retirement. But, we will also be there when things are hard. We will be here, with you through it all."

In his time away from the office, Paul enjoys being active and working on his fitness. He and his wife, Sarafina, live in Cumming, Ga. with their son, Walker, and their new baby, Kailer.
