MFG Insider- July


MFG Partners – Joliet, IL

The Chicago office of Mack Financial is conveniently located in Joliet on the 129th Infantry Drive.  The fourth largest city in Illinois and 40 miles southwest of the city of Chicago, Joliet is a prime location to serve the Chicagoland area. A professional relationship between Richard Mack and John Scully led to the concept of expanding the premier resources of MFG and M Financial to the Chicago area. John partnered with his friend and colleague, Aaron Barr, and  opened MFG partners in Joliet in 2014.  John and Aaron were pleased to expand the team in 2015 with the addition of Micki Naal.

After high visibility careers, first in the NFL and then in professional music production, I entered the insurance industry in 2001. I have had the great privilege of working with some of the most impressive companies and personages in the industry. Throughout all my careers I have seen that success is almost always a result of aptitude, sustained effort and unique value.

Having been long acquainted with M Financial Group through friendships with Fred Jonske (President) and executive search guru Mike Corey, in 2014 I was introduced by Mr. Corey to senior board member Richard Mack of Mack Financial Group.  This collaboration has allowed my contacts to benefit from access to superbly designed and administered proprietary products.

I am pleased to report that Mack Financial Group (a member firm of M Financial Group) provides my high net worth clients with unique options that are the product of long term experience and the creative application of advanced thinking.
