Dan Hager - Northwestern Mutual

Dan Hager, MBA, is a Northwestern Mutual Financial Representative who serves in the business benefits market as well as individual financial planning.

My wife, Melissa and I first moved to Minnesota in 2006 and have enjoyed everything it has to offer. We now live in Faribault, Minnesota and have 2 beutiful children, Cameron (3) and Addilyn (1). Our free time is typically spent outdoors either training for various races or playing with our children in the backyard. I have been an entrepreneur my whole life. In college that began to show when I started what became a nationally recognized chapter of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) at Ripon College where I also graduated with honors. I then went on to earn an MBA from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. My experience at Bethel changed my life as I now have a deeper appreciation for the significance we all play in each other's lives. My passion for my career stems from just that - a true desire to make a positive impact for those around me as it relates to their financial security. My vision for my business is to be the premier source of financial literacy education in my marketplace and to change lives by implementing simple yet effective strategies for my clients to achieve financial freedom.
