JD Ramirez is one of Northwestern Mutual Goodwin, Wright’s most influential and formidable rising leaders.  Born in Bogotá, Colombia JD brings a wealth of understanding and passion to working with the Hispanic and Latino community.  As a driven entrepreneur, JD is dedicated to growing a business to reflect the market he serves by expanding the Firm’s presence and deepening the relationships in the Hispanic and Latino communities, as well as supporting diversity among the Firm’s Financial Representatives.  

JD has achieved record-setting success and is among the very limited number of Northwestern Mutual Hispanic Financial Representatives across the country who have achieved Million Dollar Roundtable in the first year and Summit premium credit in the second year. He was also second in the Bronze category as new Financial Representative in the Southern Region for 2017 and was also recognized as a “Rising Star” at the Annual Gala for the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

JD’s passion is to support the 85 percent of foreigners who become business owners achieve success. He supports these business owners through holistic financial planning focusing both on their personal and business aspirations. Through this approach, JD creates a tremendous impact on the lives of his Hispanic clients, as well as the lives of his client’s biggest asset, their families.

Because of JD’s ability to relate and forge meaningful relationships, members of the Hispanic and Latino community with whom he works are better equipped to persevere through tumultuous times. As a compassionate father and husband, JD lives in Atlanta with his wife Janine. They are proud parents of three wonderful children, Juan David, born in 2014 and Isabella, born in 2016 and their 7 year-old adopted daughter Francesse from Haiti; as well as two dogs, Aldo and Draco. JD understands the importance of planning for the future and is dedicated to helping his clients and their families.

JD is very involved in the community and during the first years of his practice at Northwestern Mutual he has volunteered with more than a dozen different organizations.  He is focused on representing the foundation, success and values of the Northwestern Mutual’s brand to the Hispanic Market today. Based on this great effort he has been selected as a board member of ALPFA, Association of Latino Professionals for America the largest Latino Professional Organization for the development of new Hispanic Leaders, and the GHCC Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Joining with a team from the Goodwin Wright office to bring new Financial Representatives, JD is part of our LEAD team. He is passionate about equipping and developing others and enjoys working with individuals who otherwise may not be exposed to understanding the importance of solid financial planning and the various investment and risk products available.

JD plans to continue the success of growing and developing his business and creating a value proposition for all of the clients he serves both in the Latino and traditional market for years to come.
