Featured Career Changer: Suneel Garg

Suneel Garg took a sundry road to Northwestern Mutual - Los Angeles. He graduated from USC with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and began working as an auditor at Ernest and Young. After going to business school, he became the COO/CFO of ChemTrans, a Los Angeles-based, hazardous materials trucking company. After six years at the company, and over 600% revenue growth, Suneel decided to follow his entrepreneurial spirit and leave ChemTrans to become a financial advisor – a decision he is glad he made!

Through a mentoring program at USC, Suneel was introduced to Northwestern Mutual. He found his background in accounting and business prepared him well for work here, and it gave him credibility and confidence from an early point.

Joining Northwestern Mutual took Suneel back to the client-centric world in which he revels and thrives. It enabled him to follow his passion of educating his clients on how to think big and think outside the box when trying to accomplish their financial goals.
