A near native of Colorado, Armen moved to Littleton from Chicago when he was three years old.  He attended Columbine High School and The University of Colorado - Boulder.  Armen began college studying civil engineering, but transferred into the Leeds School of Business during his sophomore year after the passing of his father.  Looking for direction and purpose in life, he joined Northwestern Mutual's highly accredited internship program in 1998.  Conversations about planning for the unforeseen - including protecting the ones you may leave behind, began to influence how he wanted to build his career.

Armen graduated with a B.S. in Business, and a double degree in finance and marketing, choosing to continue his career with Northwestern Mutual as a full time financial advisor. He currently holds active Series 7, 26, 63, & 66 licenses, a Colorado Life & Health insurance producer’s license, and the CLU® designation from the American College.  In 2012, he was appointed as the Managing Director of the Northwestern Mutual DTC office.

Professionally, Armen’s passion is twofold:  First, to help clients realize their potential by partnering with them as they pursue their future financial goals; and second, to develop a team of advisors and associates into a thriving network of compassionate and highly-competent professionals who share his commitment to our community, our clients, and our families.

Armen lives in Denver with his wife Jameela and their two sons, Nico & Dominic.  His commitment to his clients and his office is significant, but family is at the core of every endeavor.  He travels frequently, learning and speaking at various conferences around the country, and is very active in working with Northwestern Mutual’s leadership team in shaping the future of the company.  Resolute in his pursuit of overall health and fitness, Armen always makes time to work out, but will spend nearly every evening and weekend with his family.
