Trent Gilbert

Director of Investment Operations and Services
Office 404-846-3043

Originally from Columbus, I have lived in Georgia my entire life and moved to south Atlanta in 1994.  After graduating from Oglethorpe University in 2011, I found myself drawn to the financial services industry as it had always been an interest of mine.  I began my career with another large mutual insurance company then moved to a small broker dealer before joining Mac's team in May, 2015.

My role and expertise is to assist our clients in developing their holistic, customized financial plans and investment strategies. 

I have a passion for fitness and dedicate myself to maintaining the high standards which I have set for myself.  Should you find me outside of work or the gym I am likely spending my time with close friends or watching Netflix.

Financial Advisor
Office 404-846-4066

With so many products available in the financial services industry, it can be an overwhelming task determining what will be best for you, your family, and your business.  After working in the banking industry for several years, I transitioned to a great opportunity that would allow me to share my financial knowledge with clients; helping families, small businesses, and individuals attain financial goals.  Now as a network representative with the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, nothing is more exciting to me than working with clients to help them find the right products to meet unique and personalized goals in both meaningful and attainable ways.
