North Star Medical Division appoints new president to continue serving medical clients across the nation

MINNEAPOLIS — August 29, 2023 —Michael G. Foley, CFP®, CSLP®, financial advisor in Scottdale, Ariz., was announced today as the next president of North Star Resource Group’s Medical Division.

The Medical Division, which was founded in 2001, consists of a group of advisors who specialize in working with clients in the healthcare space. This includes individuals ranging from those who are in residency to those who are in retirement.

“It’s an honor to take over the role of Division president, and I look forward to seeing what we’re able to accomplish over the next year and beyond,” Foley stated.

Foley is a comprehensive financial advisor based out of Scottsdale, Ariz., though he proudly serves clients all throughout the U.S. He was inspired to become a financial advisor after witnessing the experience that his parents—who are both medical professionals themselves—had with their financial advisor. Through this experience, he found a passion for working with medical professionals far and wide on their journey to financial independence.

Foley is set to assume the role of North Star Medical Division President immediately, taking over from prior President Zachary MacDougall, CFP®, ChFC®. MacDougall is a partner and financial advisor based in San Diego and was the Division’s president from March 2022 to August 2023.

“I look to my fellow North Star Medical Division advisor and colleague Zach MacDougall for inspiration as I assume this role,” Foley continued. “I was able to grow under his leadership and vision for the Division, and I want to continue that process right where he left off.”
