Gene Henry Storms, CLU®, ChFC®, MSFS

Financial Representative

After a successful career serving as Managing Partner for The Columns Resource Group, Gene Storms has come full circle, returning to a career as a financial representative.

Gene Storms reflects on his career:

"I've enjoyed interacting and learning with other field people whether they are from Northwestern Mutual or the industry at large. To me that is the best thing about this career and our culture. No matter what stage you are in professionally, our company encourages involvement."

When Gene Storms retired as managing partner on Nov. 1, 2007 and transitioned to financial representative, his career total of 4,456 lives still ranked in the top 100 among active financial representatives. It is an amazing feat for someone who in 1972, also began a career in
leadership which culminated in a 15-year tenure in Minneapolis as managing partner. The managing partner position enabled him to impact more lives than even he imagined as a successful representative in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Gene now puts his extensive experience to work with individual clients to help them achieve financial security.

Let Gene Storms help you meet your financial goals.
