Kelly DowlingFull Bio

Kelly Dowling

As the Director of Marketing at Navigon Financial Group, Inc., I get to play a part in changing lives positively every day as I help our Advisors to empower individuals, families and business owners to set their financial goals and then come up with a clear strategy to accomplish that. By educating consumers about financial planning and using life insurance as the center of a sound financial plan that provides benefits throughout their lifetime, we can truly help to make those goals a reality.

Navigon Financial was founded in 1912 in Greensboro, NC and has continued to be a consistent and steady presence having had only four Managing Partners in over 100 years. We have overcome significant changes in the past years and have grown consistently to be one of Penn Mutual’s most successful agencies.

I believe our success has come from Navigon Financial Group’s continual focus on always acting in the best interests of our clients and our producers. By doing so, we enable our producers to always serve their clients in the best way possible. While it is important to be successful, we have an opportunity to do more. To me, Navigon is more than just a place to work. It’s a place where the experience of creating a life of significance occurs for everyone; a place where producers are able to grow beyond financial success. By serving their values and utilizing the strengths, knowledge, and experiences they have gained in their lives, our producers can significantly impact the lives they touch.
