My Colleagues

Gary M Veltidi, CLU®, ChFC®, RICP® 
Financial Advisor

In 2003, after 20 years working as a Finance and Operations executive in Fortune 500 retail companies, Gary decided to pursue a career that would have an impact on people's lives.  Ultimately what led him to a change was the conviction of the people he met within the network who share his values and beliefs.

Gary and his wife Terri live in Plano, TX and together have four adult children.  In their free time they enjoy golf, going to the gym and volunteering to the causes they view as important.


Matt Robb, RICP®
Financial Advisor

With a background in pastoral ministry, Matt joined Northwestern Mutual in 2014 to impact lives in the business world and serve those seeking financial security.  He spent 17 years in the full time ministry where he developed the relationship skills to help families and business owners navigate complicated financial solutions.  Matt's passion is to help his clients live a life of purpose without any financial regrets.

Matt and his wife Jennifer live in Rockwall, TX and have three children. In their free time they enjoy spending time with the kids, gardening and long distance cycling.
