Duncan MacEachern

With more than 25 years in the financial services industry, Duncan MacEachern has the experience necessary to help clients and businesses make sound investment decisions. 

After graduating from Michigan State University in 1981, Duncan quickly became the youngest Regional Director in the history of a Fortune 500 company. After successfully managing a third of the country, he made the decision to join Shearson Lehman Hutton and start a financial services company.

As an experienced financial investment advisor, Duncan founded Celtic Wealth Management Group, Inc. in 2002 to independently advise his clients and show them the path to financial independence. Knowing that this would be important and challenging work, he began what would be a life-long program of financial education. He continues to maintain up to date industry education, expertise and licensure.

With three young children and a beautiful wife, Duncan found the financial services industry a perfect fit for his lifelong career. This decision allows him to spend more time with his family while helping other people accomplish their financial and lifestyle dreams.
