Carole H Martin, CLU®

Managing Director

Welcome to the website of Carole Martin,CLU®, Managing Director of Northwestern Mutual's Asheville district office.  Carole's work with clients in the Asheville area over the past 24 years means that she has the insight and experience necessary to help lead you and your family to a secure financial future.

Many people look back on their lives with regret; not for the things they have done, but for the things they have left undone. They find they are more successful than they thought they would be and saved less than they intended. They find themselves in situations that are more complex and less predictable than they anticipated.

That is where I come in. I take the time to get to know you and your preferences. I can help you anticipate and prepare for the best—and worst scenarios. The relationship I establish with you enables me to focus on your needs—what you want for your family and what you are currently doing. 


My Mission

As a Northwestern Mutual Financial Representative, in all situations I will make those recommendations which I would do for myself and my family if faced with a similar situation.

By matching your needs with innovative solutions utilizing world-class insurance services and internationally recognized investment products, I will do my best to help you protect and provide for those people you care about most. I will work hard to build a relationship with you based on trust and integrity, always striving to provide you with the same level of ethical service that I would expect for myself.


Northwestern Mutual in Asheville supports Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation

Northwestern Mutual's Asheville office is proud to participate in Northwestern Mutual's philanthropic program to accelerate finding a cure for childhood cancers and offer support for families facing the struggles of this disease. The Northwestern Mutual Foundation is partner with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and Starlight Children's Foundation, two national organizations with expertise and programs to help us reach these goals.

In April 2013, our office hosted a Northwestern Mutual Lemonade Stand in our community to raise money for Alex's, which funds pediatric cancer research and helps families with travel expenses to get their child to out-of-area treatment centers.

This multi-year commitment harnesses the passion of thousands of Northwestern Mutual's field force members, including their families, friends and clients to provide help for today and hope for tomorrow to children and families battling this disease.

A special thank-you to everyone who came by the stand to support a great cause and enjoy some delicious lemonade!
