Mark Wellwood

Vice President, Business Development, Northwest

As Vice President of Business Development, Mark helps financial advisors realize their career goals and dreams can be a reality. He takes the time to understand advisors’ books of business, career objectives, where their business currently is and where they would like it to go, and he leads them on the path to pursuing success.

Mark joined the Carson team in 2017. Prior to this, he spent more than seven years in the insurance industry. His most recent position was as an External Wholesaler for Pacific Life, where he specialized in helping make the life insurance experience for financial advisors simple and valuable to their business. Mark graduated from Creighton University with a degree in Interpersonal Communication. He also played baseball for the Bluejays.

When not at work, Mark enjoys spending time with his wife Mary and their four children and dog Max. Part of his lifestyle he has taken very seriously is working out at CrossFit. Mark is a passionate fan of the Creighton Bluejays, Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Browns. As a hobby, Mark enjoys entertaining family and friends while smoking meats.
