Richard V Tipton, CLU®, ChFC®, REBC®, RHU®, LUTCF®

Financial Representative


I have represented Northwestern Mutual since 1985 in Columbus, Georgia. After working with thousands of individual and business clients, I am convinced that most people fail for lack of a preparation. This is where I come in. Securing your future must be worked at over a lifetime. Beginning now will make a world of difference later in life. What do you care about? What do you hope for? What are your dreams? It begins with me listening to you. It ends with a lifetime of follow-through. We will meet for reviews as your life changes. My promise is to be there for every client as your life unfolds. The services I can offer are enhanced by the resources of Northwestern Mutual.
