MINNEAPOLIS, MN—North Star Chairman & CEO Phil Richards, CEO-Elect Ed Deutschlander, and several of North Star’s top financial advisors were invited to speak at two of Greece’s leading financial firms on October 12th and 13th.
Prior to the group’s October 14th departure on a Greek Isle cruise, they first spoke on the 12th to a group of 100 from the Farantouris Insurance and Financial Advising Firm in Athens at their headquarters. Farantouris is Greece’s first true financial advising firm and credits North Star as the model it has built for the firm.
On the 13th, the North Star group was invited to address The International Life Insurance Company of Greece, also in Athens. Richards and Deutschlander spoke to field leaders of the firm in a morning session while North Star advisors Larry Altman, Todd Bramson, Gaylen Harms, Jeff Jarnes, Ted Smith and Doug Weisenberger addressed over 120 advisors of the firm in the afternoon. Topics of the sessions included strategies and philosophies around building highly productive practices, opportunities within the financial industry and the foundation of life insurance. Each session was filled with local media to cover the event—watch a three minute piece from the sessions featuring both Richards and Deutschlander here.
Both firms had a powerful impact on the North Star group in Greece. Todd Bramson, a Madison, WI-based North Star advisor stated, “Of all the wonderful things we did in the past two weeks, speaking to these groups with everyone from North Star was one of my highlights.”
