Brandon Strope

Brandon M. Strope, MBA, ChFC®, CLU®, CLTC®

Managing Director
Office 720-550-5722

After growing up in Longmont, Colorado, Brandon followed his high school sweetheart to the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Both Division I athletes, Brandon and Amanda were married in 2007 while completing their MBAs. Through a turn of events that only God could design, Brandon had the opportunity to become the Head Men’s Golf Coach at ULM, challenging him to take on a big responsibility at a young age and introducing him both to his problem-solving, entrepreneurial character and his passion for building into those around him.

Also, in 2007, Brandon first joined Northwestern Mutual as a college intern, where he would finish a three year “test drive” of the financial planning career as a Top 10 intern in the country. In 2013, he became one of the youngest Managing Directors at Northwestern Mutual, a role that in effect places Brandon in a CEO role of the office in Boulder. He and his team passionately serve their clients while also selecting, developing and empowering advisors as they launch their careers in financial planning.
