Harold H Philipsen, CFP®, ChFC®, CLU®, RICP®, AEP®

Wealth Management Advisor


Harold Philipsen graduated from the Amsterdam School of Business with a B.S. in International Business. A Dutch native married to an American, Harold has lived and worked in both the Netherlands and the United States.

He spent the first part of his professional life in Europe managing large client relationships in both the Telecommunications and Flexible Employment industries.  While working in the Netherlands, Harold served clients around the globe and had the fortune of working with clients and colleagues from many different nationalities.

Harold was first introduced to Northwestern Mutual when he and his wife became clients in 2004 after they moved back to the US.  He moved back to join his wife's family transportation business, where he succeeded in growing sales considerably. While in the family business, he worked closely to ensure adequate insurance coverage while managing costs. It was there that he realized he was far more drawn to the financial security aspects of running the family business, including insurance, investments and estate planning, than the business itself.  When Harold mentioned to his own Northwestern Mutual Representative (and friend) that he was interested in moving into the financial services industry, the friend said, "You’ve got to come to Northwestern Mutual."

He joined Northwestern Mutual in March 2006 as a Financial Representative, became Field Director in 2009 and Managing Director of Northwestern Mutual - The Virginia Peninsula Group in 2010.

Harold was awarded the CLU® (Chartered Life Underwriter®) designation in 2009, ChFC® (Chartered Financial Consultant®) designation in 2010 and CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM) certificate in 2012, and AEP® (Accredited Estate Planner) in 2016.
