Shawn W Phelps, MBA

Wealth Management Advisor
Office 614-881-1547

Shawn graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ashland University with a Bachelors of Business Administration and Political Science. He later graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ashland University with a Masters of Business Administration with a concentration in Personal Finance. Shawn obtained his Trust and Estate Planning Degree from Midwest Trust School at Bowling Green University, where he was later an instructor.

Shawn started in banking in 1997 by helping families and small business owners in and around Licking County. In 2001 he began managing a local Trust Department in Zanesville and brings to Northwestern Mutual his knowledge of managing personal finances for families and businesses in and around the area.

Shawn has been awarded the distinguished Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) award since 2011 and continues to grow his personal planning practice as well as helping business owners plan around their businesses.

Shawn has also been recognized for his leadership within the Central Ohio area and has been named a Growth Development Director within Northwestern Mutual. As a Director, Shawn is growing a team of new advisors within his team by recruiting and coaching these colleagues as they begin their careers with Northwestern Mutual.

Shawn also won 2015 and 2016 Financial Representative of the Year from the Kemelgor Network Office for his outstanding growth in his practice through all of the help of his team, and through the loyalty of his clients.

Shawn believes in working hard and playing hard!  This is also true for his wife, Leigh Anne, and their boys, Seth and Alex.  Leigh Anne is an earth science teacher in Licking Valley, having spent nearly two decades helping students get excited about the world in which we live.  The boys are extremely active in school – in both academics and athletics.  In addition to being committed members a local renaissance program that encourages other students to achieve goals, the boys are strong and prideful teammates in their middle and high school baseball and football teams.

Uniquely, the Phelps family lives on multiple acres where they raise beef cattle.  Leigh Anne, admittedly, leaves this activity to the boys.

When the calendar allows, the entire family loves to travel both in and outside this country and have high hopes to continue to fill their passports!
