Doing Work that Matters

Tim Bohannon, Managing Partner of Northwestern Mutual Twin Cities office, crafted his mission statement from four premises. But of them, he singled out two as the most important to his vision for the group:

Integrity and Passion.

“Both of these have to do with the quality of service that we provide our clients. Without the integrity to do the right thing, and the passion to go the extra mile for our clients, we might as well go home,” explains Tim Bohannon.

Tim invites you to explore this site, and experience for yourself how this commitment to quality reflects the expertise Northwestern Mutual Twin Cities offers its clients.

Tim Bohannon believes that if he finds the right person, then his organization can find him or her the right role. "Our purpose statement is, 'We help people align their actions with their values,'" said Bohannon. That statement to help clients also helps to drive alignment of values throughout the Bohannon's office.

13th Annual Bohannon Charity Golf Tournament

Northwestern Mutual Twin Cities sponsored their 13th Annual Charity Golf Tournament this year on June 13th, 2016. For the past several years, the Bohannon Group Foundation partnered with Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway and his Lead The Way Foundation. Participants enjoyed a beautiful day of golf while also benefitting an amazing organization. Together, we raised over $150,000 and are able to enrich the lives of Twin Cities youth, with primary focus on chronically ill children and their families.

Thank you to all of the golfers, sponsors and donors that helped make our event a memorable one!
