Northwestern Mutual CEO John Schlifske says his company is seeking “ways to partner” with Foxconn Technology Group including moving employees from the company’s venture capital unit into the downtown Milwaukee office building Foxconn is buying from Northwestern Mutual.

Wisconsin Ave. that NM will sell to Foxconn.
