& Kathleen J. Erkel, CLU®, ChFC®

Erkel and Erkel was started from scratch by husband and wife team, Bob and Kathy Erkel. They both graduated magna cum laude on the same day in 1985 from Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. It was during college that Bob started working with Northwestern Mutual as a college intern and then Kathy joined NM as a full time representative in 1985. Within a year, they combined forces to create the team of Erkel and Erkel. From that start, their practice currently serves over 350 full financial planning clients. Their aspiration from the beginning has always been to provide the best quality products and solutions, along with efficient, reliable service to meet the needs of those they serve.

They reside at the lake in Spring Lake Township, Minnesota where they love boating, fishing, water skiing and outdoor activities. They have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
