Rick Thurman, MBA

Financial Representative


Rick began his career as an Engineer with Texas Eastern Gas Pipeline (TEGP). After several years with TEGP and having completed his MBA, he joined Coopers & Lybrand (now PWC) to create a business development group. His career continued with management roles in Marketing and Sales at Continental Airlines, Knight Ridder and Dow Jones.

Prior to joining Northwestern Mutual (NM) in 2002, Rick taught money management techniques such as debt reduction/elimination, budgeting and wealth accumulation through a stewardship perspective.  He decided to combine his hobby and experience into a career where he could make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Northwestern Mutual afforded him this opportunity, and it's been very gratifying for him to see so many of his clients address incredibly important issues that otherwise might have been overlooked. Currently, his primary focus is helping clients plan for and enter into a care-free retirement.


Rick graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University. He also received his MBA in Corporate Finance from the University of Houston.  As an undergraduate and graduate student, he studied abroad in Italy. 

He has continued his education by completing coursework at The American College. He received his CASL® designation in May 2010 and the ChFC® designation in November 2014.
