Expect the Best















Gary Taylor, Managing Director of Northwestern Mutual in Charlottesville and Lynchburg, Virginia, builds his team with hand-selected financial representatives who reflect the group’s values: integrity, passion and leadership. But another quality of professionalism surfaces, and that’s excellence.

"Our clients expect nothing but the best," explains Gary Taylor. So that’s what this team delivers, every day for every client – excellence built upon a foundation of solid and lasting relationships.

With exclusive access to a vast array of high-quality financial products, services, and expertise, each financial representative takes a personalized approach with their clients. They work closely to understand their values and goals and then provide personalized financial plans that can help manage financial risk and achieve their financial security goals.

We invite you to explore this site, and experience for yourself how this commitment to excellence reflects the expertise that our local Northwestern Mutual offices offer our clients.
