About MeDoug is an experienced professional who has built a career and reputation based on serving clients. After a successful career in the National Football League, Doug shifted his career to strategic wealth management. Since 1989, Doug and his team of experts have been helping thousands of people find their path to financial security.
A proud graduate of the University of Texas, Doug played offensive line for the Longhorn football team for four seasons. He was named a consensus All-American for both football and academics his senior year. He was a second-round draft pick in 1984 of the St. Louis Cardinals and went on to play for eight seasons in the NFL. Over his career he played for the Cardinals, Houston Oilers and the Cleveland Browns. When a football injury temporarily sidelined his career, Doug Dawson joined Northwestern Mutual. He realized the opportunity for impact associated with the career, because of the legacy of his grandfather, Ross Dawson, who was a General Agent and member of the Million Dollar Round Table. When Doug returned to football to play for the Oilers, he continued to meet with clients. In fact, his last two years of professional football were his first two years of finishing among the top twenty performers in the nation with Northwestern Mutual.
After the NFL, Doug focused full time on helping others find financial security. He has built a strong wealth management team and continues to achieve Northwestern Mutual's highest honors.

Attracting Quality Associates (AQA)
Doug and his team encourage you to review the background of every financial professional you may work with at www.finra.org. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States. All told, FINRA oversees nearly 5,000 brokerage firms, about 173,000 branch offices and approximately 677,000 registered securities representatives.
After achieving the high honors in both football and academics, Doug graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984 with his Bachelor's degree in Petroleum Engineering. After college, Doug played professional football for the Cardinals, Oilers and Browns during which time he also started his practice with Northwestern Mutual, placing among the top twenty performers in the nation. These achievements would be a dream come true for some people, but, for Doug Dawson, they were a platform to make other people's dreams come true. Doug found that the most fulfilling experiences have been off the football field.
Doug Dawson's passion for making an impact and turning dreams into reality began during his football career. While volunteering for Make a Wish, Doug visited children with life-threatening illnesses and established relationships with the entire family. Over the years, Doug has continued to serve on the Make a Wish Board, as well as other local non-profits like Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Above all, Doug considers being a Dad his greatest opportunity for impact. According to Doug, "Arlin and Ross are a true blessing. I thank God every day for the privilege of being their father." Whether serving the community, spending time with his kids, or meeting with clients, Doug Dawson considers every moment an opportunity for impact. Doug serves as a coach and accountability partner to his clients along with his team of highly-credentialed associates who share his vision for making an impact. Together, Doug and his team inspire others to dream big dreams, impact the community with their hearts for service and turn financial security into a reality.

We Want Your Voice to be Heard
Wealthtender exists to help people discover the most trusted and authentic professionals and educators in the finance community.
Your honest reviews of the providers featured in our directories help people decide which providers may be best suited to their individual needs.
The majority of people trust reviews as much as personal recommendations, so what you write in your review should reflect your own opinion and experience with the provider.
Tips for Writing a Helpful Review
Be descriptive. Instead of just saying that you like or dislike a provider, share why. What have you enjoyed most or least about your experience with the provider? Have they helped you overcome a difficult financial challenge or strengthened your knowledge about particular money matters? The more details, the better!
Be honest. Your rating and review should reflect your real experience with the provider.
Stay relevant. Help ensure your review is useful to others by avoiding off-topic discussions or personal opinions not relevant to your direct experience with the provider.
Be objective. Try to highlight both positives and negatives in your review, even if your experience skews heavily in one direction.
Make your review easy to read. Reviews should be readable for others. Use proper grammar, avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation, and be sure to check your spelling.
Be yourself. Don’t post as, or pretend to be, someone else, and do not say you’re associated with a person or organization with which you are not.
Be nice. Don’t write abusive, hateful, threatening, or harrassing content. Avoid personal threats, hate speech, obscentities, or inflammatory language.
Respect the privacy of others. Don’t post information that can be used to identity another individual or compromise their privacy.
