Dionisis Papadatos, a financial representative for Northwestern Mutual-Chicago, was named director of the university unit. In this leadership role, he will recruit and lead a team of college students participating in the firm’s cutting-edge financial planning internship program.
“Dio has made a great contribution to the internship by mentoring and mentoring our college financial representatives,” said James Stinson, Managing Director. “As a former intern in a leadership field, building a financial planning business, he is building a career that allows him to live his life with purpose while helping others discover their potential.”
Papadatos started learning the basics of financial planning and how to start a business during the internship program. Through coaching, mentoring and team opportunities within Northwestern Mutual-Chicago and the Deerfield team, he learned the power of personalized planning in creating intergenerational wealth. After graduating from the University of Miami, he was invited to join the firm full-time.
Shortly thereafter, he began his leadership journey and was named a University Unit Captain in 2021, a position he held until being named a University Unit Director in 2022.
In addition to his leadership role, he will continue to increase his impact by serving career professionals and family business owners who are open-minded and willing to plan their lifestyle.
