Review the experiences and accomplishments of Bradley Cotharn:


"I started my career in public accounting with Price Waterhouse in Houston.  I achieved my CPA designation, and continued my accounting career with Fortune 500 companies such as Baker Hughes, Sysco Corporation, and Thermo Electron.  I held a variety of positions, including International Accountant, Accounting Manager, Internal Audit, Operations Review, Controller, and Director of Finance.

After 12 years in the accounting profession, I was looking for a new challenge. I wanted a career that would allow me to have a more meaningful impact on people's lives, and would allow me to more fully utilize my skills.  By fate, I met a representative with the Northwestern Mutual who introduced me to this career.

I truly feel that I have now found my calling.  I love meeting new clients and developing those relationships.  I love helping my clients achieve their goals, and working with them over time as we both grow together.  I love knowing that I provide my clients with the peace of mind that they are on a track to achieve their goals."
