Dean Niewolny: Trading Up for a Greater Mission

Dean Niewolny: Trading Up for a Greater Mission 2017-08-08T21:43:20+00:00

“The appetite for significance is at an all time high, yet most people have no idea where or how to identify their gifts and talent—and to connect to their passions. And that’s my love for Halftime. Nothing satisfies more than to help a man or woman say, ‘This is what God has for me to do.’” – Dean Niewolny

 
Dean Niewolny spent 23 years in executive roles with three of Wall Street’s largest financial firms, finishing his career in the financial sector as market manager for Wells Fargo Advisors in Chicago, where he oversaw a $100mm market.

While in Chicago, he and his wife, Lisa, traveled many times to Africa and, seeing the abject needs of widows and orphans, made life changes that enabled them to get involved, such as helping to complete an orphan home and a Hospice home in Durbin, South Africa.

In 2010, Dean traded his marketplace career for the Halftime Institute to help more people who, like him, wanted to expand their own “first half” success and skills into passion and purpose for meeting human needs and making a significant difference. Dean has served as CEO of the Halftime Institute since 2010, in fulfillment of his second half mission statement “To inspire and encourage high capacity leaders on a journey to identify their  Eph 2:10 calling and engage in the issues Jesus cares about.”
