Zachary MacDougall named President of North Star Medical Division

MINNEAPOLIS — March 8, 2022 — Zachary MacDougall, Partner and Wealth Advisor at North Star Resource Group, has been named President of North Star’s Medical Division.

As a member for over a decade, MacDougall has been instrumental to the growth and development seen within the division. Damon Lichtenberger, former division president, stated “We made some good strides over the last year and a half. I know Zach will take the division to the next level.”

Formed in 2001, North Star’s Medical Division works with dozens of residency programs and hospitals, providing services for thousands of physicians and dentists at every stage of their career. Advisors in the division work with medical professionals as they move from residency/fellowship into practice. Members have expertise in medical practice benchmarking and exit strategies and remain up to date on unique asset protection needs for physicians.

MacDougall, who will remain president through the 2023 year, stated, “I am excited and honored to lead North Star’s Medical Division. I’ll be taking on this leadership position at a very unique time in history.”

On a day-to-day basis, advisors in North Star’s Medical Division leverage the network for questions and additional perspectives when making client recommendations. The division also meets on a quarterly basis to review case studies and remain informed on the financial industry.

“Medical professionals have sacrificed so much for our communities in the past few years,” continued MacDougall, “They deserve relevant, client-centric service that we will continue to deliver. This role will allow me to have an impact on my personal clients, but also influence tens of thousands of additional households.”
