Playing football for the Cardinals, Oilers and Browns; being recognized as an All American in both football and academics; and finishing among the top twenty with Northwestern Mutual eight times would be a dream come true for many. For Doug Dawson, these experiences have been a platform for making other people’s dreams come true.
Dawson’s passion for making an impact and turning dreams into reality began during his football career while volunteering for Make-A-Wish. Dawson made wishes come true by visiting children with life-threatening illnesses and establishing relationships with the entire family. Over the years, he has continued to serve on the Make-A-Wish Board, as well as other local non-profits including Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Aspiring Youth.
When a football injury temporarily sidelined his career, Dawson joined Northwestern Mutual. He realized the opportunity for impact associated with the career because of the legacy of his grandfather, Ross Dawson, who was a general agent and member of the Million Dollar Round Table. When Dawson returned to football to play for the Oilers, he continued to meet with clients. In fact, his last two years of professional football were his first two years of finishing among the top 20 with Northwestern Mutual.
Whether serving the community; spending time with his kids, Arlin and Ross; or meeting with clients; Dawson considers every moment an opportunity for impact. As a wealth management advisor, Dawson serves as a coach and accountability partner to his clients. His team of highly credentialed associates shares his vision for making an impact. Together, Dawson and his team inspire others to dream big dreams, impact the community with their heart for service and turn financial security into a reality.
Above all, Dawson considers being a dad his greatest opportunity for impact. According to Dawson, “Arlin and Ross are a true blessing. I thank God every day for the privilege of being their father.”
