CAPE GIRARDEAU -- Members of the Hahs Group, the local district office of the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, gathered recently at the Members Manor at Dalhousie Golf Club to celebrate having exceeded $1 million in new insurance premium sold for the company year concluded at the end of May.

The office now has 16 full-time financial representatives; in addition to seven students who participate in the college intern program. The Hahs Group intern program was also recently recognized as the fifth ranking college intern program in the entire United States and the Southeast Missouri State University Team ranked eighth nationally.

The Hahs Group, with offices in Cape Girardeau, Sikeson and Carbondale, Ill., is led by David L. Hahs, CLU and ChFC. After 35 years as a financial rep, he assumed the managing director position following the retirement of his cousin, T. Ronald Hahs, who had directed the office for the previous 34 years.

"Ron laid the foundation for this accomplishment over the past four years," said David Hahs. "He hired a sensational recruiter in Casey Hertenstein and brought all but five of our current reps into the organization. I am especially proud of the growth of our newer reps, who have been with the company for fewer than four years."

The Hahs Group is part of the Qualy Group in St. Louis, under the leadership of John Qualy, CLU. The Qualy Group is the largest Northwestern Mutual Financial Network office in the country.
