Before joining the ISG, Nate was a financial planner in Blue Trust’s Chicago office.

Passionate about missions, Nate has traveled to many countries, such as China, India, and the Dominican Republic, participating in and leading mission trips where he taught basketball, college-level courses, and built churches. During his time in Chicago, he was active in his community. He volunteered with SLAM, which is part of GRIP Outreach for Youth, and served as a deacon and small group leader at his local church.

Nate and his wife, Colette, live in Hanover, New Hampshire, where they enjoy hiking and living an active lifestyle.

We first called Blue Trust to determine how soon I could retire. Our Blue Trust advisor guided us on a spiritual path at exactly the right time to focus us on God’s will at this stage of our lives and we will be forever thankful.

I've been involved with financial planners for well over 40 years. There's very few of them that do it like Blue Trust. Very few concentrate on giving as part of the overall plan.
