Ashley Knox has been awarded the PACESETTER award by leading financial security company Northwestern Mutual.

Pacesetter honors financial advisors who set 40 clients on the path to achieving financial security during their first six months in the business through the issuance of life, disability and long-term care insurance policies, as well as meeting additional thresholds of performance.

Knox joined the Northwestern Mutual-Clayton network office and its Chesterfield location in September 2021 after serving for more than a decade with a local credit union. She has served in community development teaching financial literacy and helping area residents establish goals for starting their own businesses.

“Ashley has always dreamed of being a financial advisor and she is one of those unique knowledgeable individuals who is able to build trust immediately, putting the needs of clients first” said Herman Jimerson, financial advisor and mentor to Knox. “She accomplished what less than 6% of all financial advisors accomplish in their first six months and is helping many families pursue the path to financial security. Anyone she gets in front of immediately likes her, and they just glow.”
Jim Zara, CLU, ChFC Managing Director/Wealth Management Advisor Northwestern Mutual-Chesterfield said, “Ashley is such a joy to have around our firm. She is, as others, focused as there is and a total team player. Her number one objective is to use her God-given and self-developed talents to serve her clients. She has an incredibly bright future.”

A 2016 graduate of Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Knox received a Bachelor of Social Work degree.
Knox and her family currently reside in the South City area of St. Louis.
