Northwestern Marketing Concepts was founded with the belief that a company can be a family, too. Starting as an independent marketing firm, Northwestern Marketing Concepts has expanded to nine states with continual growth. Our biggest accomplishment is developing people’s careers through true partnership within our management development program.
We put people first, not the bottom line.

DJ is originally from a small town in northern Idaho. He excelled in athletics and played basketball for Whitman College where he studied biology. After working as a laboratory technician straight out of college, he sought greater opportunities and a more exciting work environment.

Vincent hails from Fruitland, ID, a town of just 4,000 people. He wanted the big college town experience, so he attended Washington State University, where he studied music and law (GO COUGS!). Vincent played in WSU’s marching band; he was also a member of Beta Theta Pi. Thinking law was his future career, Vincent gained experience with the Idaho Democratic Party and met with people in the law field. After working in the field, he realized that he didn’t want to pursue law any longer. Vincent received a call from one of the Northwestern Marketing Concepts and joined the team in January 2015. “The reason I am so excited to be an assistant manager is because I can now broaden my scope and help so many other people reach their goals. This is the next step of many, but I know that I possess the tools to help more people.”
