Joe Bartello

Associate Financial Representative

I have spent my life dedicating my professional career to help people.  I grew up in Newton Iowa and attended Iowa State University where I received a bachelor’s degree and met my future wife.  After college I spent 12 years in law enforcement where I spent time as a patrol officer all the way up to serving my last 5 years in law enforcement as a Chief of Police and served over 2 years as a City Administrator.  My wife and I had become Northwestern Mutual clients years ago and we were very grateful the service and expertise they demonstrated putting together our family’s financial plan.  In 2020 I had an opportunity to step into a financial planning role with Northwestern Mutual where I could have the opportunity to share with others what was shared with me.  My experience in municipality work has allowed me to gain a lot of knowledge around work groups and what they need to be successful, therefore I not only focus on working to build financial plans for families and individuals but also groups and business as well.  This fall I have joined Jerry Schwaller as an Associate Financial Representaive where I continue to service my clients and Jerry’s as well with a focus on always being open to meeting new people.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children and spending time being outdoors.
