Career services welcomes Saint Leo alumnus Copley Gerdes ’06, current College Unit director at Northwestern Mutual for the St. Petersburg District Office. While at Saint Leo, Gerdes was a religion major and two-sport Division II athlete. His career began in sports as graduate assistant and recruiter, and later evolved into business, as business analyst with FrankCrum, Inc., and director of Special Projects at Keane, Reese, Vesely and Gerdes, P.A. Gerdes started at Northwestern Mutual as an intern, quickly rose to be recognized in the top 100 interns, and converted to a full-time Financial Representative.
