ADVISORS’ CORNER – Quinn Buckner

I have had a measure of success being part of successful organizations in both my personal and professional life. My current focus is to support, inspire and encourage people to do what needs to be done in order to secure their financial future, and I wanted to do this from within an organization similar to the Championship teams that I was part of in high school. college, the Olympic Games and in the NBA. Finding that successful team, in the financial industry, was critical so that the best resources with creative solutions would be available to solve the financial concerns and issues that we have today.

It’s a pleasure and honor to be a part of Mack Financial Group, a member firm of M Financial Group and one of the leading distributors of financial services products in the country. I am again fortunate to be part of another championship team and look forward to being of service to you, your family and your firm.
