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 after his father passed away. 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 loved ones left behind – began to influence how he wanted to build his career.
Armen attained a B.S. in Business with a double degree in finance and marketing. Following graduation, he continued his career with Northwestern Mutual. For the past 11 years, he has served as Managing Director of the Northwestern Mutual DTC Office while maintaining his role as Founder and Principal Wealth Advisor of a private wealth management firm of Northwestern Mutual.
Armen lives in Columbine Valley with his wife Jameela and their two sons, Nico & Dominic. His family and foundation in faith guide his every endeavor, and his mission in life is to serve. He travels frequently, learning and speaking at conferences around the country, and is active on several leadership committees at Northwestern Mutual. Armen takes his responsibility of civic engagement seriously and has most recently been involved with Leadership Program of the Rockies in varying capacities. He was recognized as Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year in 2019 for raising over $380K. Armen chooses to live with gratitude as a central tenet to his life; he gives thanks each day for his and his family’s health and to live in our beautiful state of Colorado.
