Mr. Jim Ditzel and Mr. Steve Misdea from Northwestern Mutual gave a captivating presentation on the personal finance and insurance industry at our Wednesday, December 7, 2011 meeting. Both Jim and Steve work together as financial advisers for Northwestern Mutual and are based in Quincy, MA. Jim is a graduate of Bentley University and entered the business immediately following graduation. Steve is a graduate of Curry College.
