Matt was honorably discharged from the Marines in September of 1999, and he joined the Northwestern Mutual in January of 2000.  Matt bleeds true Northwestern Mutual blue.  From the time he was a boy, he always knew that he would someday work with the Northwestern Mutual.  His father, Bill Goodwin, was the Managing Partner of this Network Office from 1979 until he retired in 2006.
