Northwestern Mutual financial adviser Bill Loventhal has been inducted into the Georgia State University Risk Management & Insurance Hall of Fame.

As a member of the Hall of Fame, Loventhal received a Riskie Award, which recognizes active and retired business executives who have demonstrated high achievement and service to the insurance, risk management or related industries and whose achievements and service align with the vision of the risk management and insurance department in the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State.

“Because of your outstanding leadership and achievements in the risk management field, your peers have singled you out for recognition and commendation,” David Buechner, the director of the Risk Management Foundation, told Loventhal.

Loventhal attended Georgia State as a Kemper Foundation Scholar and graduated in 1969, earning his bachelor’s in business administration with a major in insurance. He belongs to the Atlanta Alumni Chapter of the Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity, where he is a past vice president.

After two years in the U.S. Army, Loventhal joined Northwestern Mutual in Atlanta and has represented the firm for 46 years. He serves on the Atlanta Advisory Council for Israel Bonds and is a past board member of Temple Sinai and of the Association of Reform Zionists of America.
