William Bickel
Bill joined Northwestern Mutual in 2008. Prior to joining The Blevons Group, Bill was a youth pastor at a local church. Bill was introduced to the Financial Representative opportunity from a friend who was a Financial Representative with The Blevons group. Together they discussed Bill’s ambition and desire to own his own business.  Bill took the next step by exploring this career through our selection process.  Through the selection process, Bill discovered that this was an opportunity to build his own business, create flexibility for his career and family and the chance to have a high level of impact on the lives of his clients.
 
Bill is a 2001 Graduate of Concordia University.  Since Bill has joined our agency he has earned Pacesetter 40, Second 60, Pacemaker 2009 and the Achievement Award 2009 just to name a few. Bill is also a member of our office’s Lead Team.  This allows him the opportunity to grow into a mentor and management role within the agency.  Bill and his wife Julie live in the Appleton area with their two children, Jenna and Jake.
