Although Robert Cenko is a seasoned professional in the insurance and financial planning space, he did not always plan to go down this route. Robert went to school for Accounting, which is a profession that runs in the family. Early in his career, he interned for Northwestern Mutual and was designated a Top 10 Intern. After his internship, he remained with the company for over 20 years as an Investment Specialist. During this time, Robert was a major contributor to the team, and he even trained new financial advisors. While Robert appreciated working with Northwestern, he ultimately decided to venture on his own for a time, opening his own business and managing a team of 10-15 at their peak.
