Garrett T Bleakley, CLU®, CFP®

Managing Director


Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

I started with Northwestern Mutual in 2001 as an intern while attending the University of Colorado Boulder.  After obtaining my degree in Economics I continued my career as a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual in San Diego. I later continued my education to earn my Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) professional designations. 

My focus has always remained on establishing long-lasting relationships with local San Diego families as well as small business owners. By providing financial security through a comprehensive planning process my team and I help to ensure the protection and growth of our clients’ assets and lifestyle.

During June of 2006, I became a College Unit Director to help other college students determine if a career path with Northwestern Mutual was the right opportunity for them. I further broadened my leadership skills and expertise when in June of 2009 I became a Field Director in Del Mar. In October of 2010, I began my tenure as the Managing Director first in Del Mar and then opened our La Jolla office in 2012 and have been here ever since.

I hope to continue to grow the team in La Jolla with the hopes of becoming the most successful financial services firm in San Diego by adding new, talented financial advisors, and challenging them to provide the best possible service to their community.
