John M. McDonough

Managing Director

With 15 years experience in the industry, John M. McDonough brings an innovative, entrepreneurial approach to Cool Springs Financial.

John has worn many hats in his career. He’s been a Divisional Vice President at a big box firm, charged with recruiting, training, and leading other advisors while maintaining a successful personal business. He’s also worked as an independent financial advisor free from any corporate agendas that sometimes drive profitability at the expense of what’s right for the client. He has experienced and operated at the different ends of the financial spectrum.

John’s learned a lot over the fifteen years he’s been in the insurance business and he brings creativity and unsurpassed knowledge of our industry to our team and his clients. He understands what it takes to run a day-to-day business while never losing sight of the bottom line. John takes pride in finding smart and unique solutions to help his clients maximize wealth for their family or business.

John married his high school sweetheart, Edna, and the two are proud parents of their beautiful girls, Eliana and Evelyn. In his spare time, John loves to golf, cycle and work out at CrossFit. In addition to his role at Cool Springs Financial, John is a member of First Financial Resources and was honored to be elected to serve on the FFR board.
