John Greer Jr. CLU™, CHFC™, CLTC

Financial Consultant

After graduation from the University of Connecticut, John started a new career and became an agent for Northwestern Mutual Life. Over his first years, he learned and specialized in life and disability insurance. He furthered his training and was credentialed as a CLU™ (Charted Life Underwriter) and as a ChFC™ (Chartered Financial Consultant). After spending years building knowledge in insurance, John became more intrigued by the overall financial planning process and spent years helping people build financial plans which included their legacy, asset management and retirement plans.

Through formal training and experience that only time provides, John specializes by working with executives, professionals and owners of privately held businesses. He enjoys helping them navigate the benefits provided by employers and a myriad of other financial issues.

John became a life member of the Million Dollar Round Table and an annual qualifier for the National Quality Award. In addition, he was a Managing Director for a Northwestern Mutual office and holds a Series 6, 7, 9, 10, 22, 63, 66, and Health and Life Insurance licenses. For ten years, he helped identify and train the next generation of insurance and investment advisers. It is through that experience that one learns what it takes to be a good financial advisor.

In 2019, he left Northwestern Mutual and joined Craig Breitsprecher at Thrivepoint Financial. They are in practice to solely concentrate on clients. Joining in 2019 has proven to be a wonderful experience. As independent financial advisors, their collaboration has decades of experience and improved technology and innovation.

John and his wife, Sylvia, have lived in South Glastonbury for many years. Their sons and their families live in Washington, DC and Charleston, South Carolina. They both enjoy golf at Glastonbury Hills Country Club and UConn basketball. In addition, John has skied in 10 different states, is a former youth travel soccer coach and spent a number of years as the president of Connecticut's largest youth soccer organization.
