Anthony McMullen, LUTCF®

President
Registered Representative

Anthony, better known by friends, family and colleagues as “Tony”, is a native of Nashua, NH. From a young age, he knew he wanted to be in business for himself. After graduating with an Associate’s degree in Business Management from the University of New Hampshire, he started his insurance and financial services career at New York Life in 2005. The training and experience gained at this established and highly respected firm helped provide a foundation for Tony’s professional future.  Since then, he has acquired the LUTCF® professional designation through the American University, showcasing his knowledge in various areas of personal and business planning. Continuing his studies for additional designations and licenses in long-term care, retirement, income, estate and business strategies is of great importance to him.

In 2009, Tony moved his personal practice to MassMutual in their Nashua office, where they offered a more open architectural approach. He felt this was a better opportunity to connect with and be more effective for his clients. Shortly thereafter, Tony began working with Wood Associates, Inc.; a brokerage agency formed in 1956, with a long history and extensive clientele. For generations they assisted families and businesses across New England and many other states in the areas of insurance, investments, retirement, and estate planning. Working with MassMutual and Wood Associates helped Tony define what he wanted his business to be – a great financial services company taking a holistic customer-centered approach. During this time, he advanced positions from Director of Sales to Vice President of Wood Associates.

In 2015, Tony became the co-owner and President of Wood Associates when Ronald L. Wood retired.  He subsequently changed the name of his personal company, AM Business Consulting Group, LLC, to Paramount Financial Group, LLC. During this time, Tony gained valuable experience and serviced clients of different age groups, backgrounds, and business needs. In so doing, he recognized the best approach to servicing these diverse clients was to employ a team approach, which uses experts in different areas of personal and business planning. Through these trusted networking relationships Tony has developed more extensive products and services to address his clients’ needs in a constantly changing environment. This team design incorporates intergraded planning strategies with professionals in the areas of legal, accounting, financial planning, asset management, and group benefit specialist. To that effect, Tony merged Wood Associates with Kulch Insurance Group, LLC in 2017. This merge expanded the customer base and provided the opportunity and access to work with their sister company, Kulch Financial Services; an investment and asset management company that has been in business for over 20 years. The change opened the door to supplementing households with a variety of additional financial resources, like an asset manager for brokerage accounts and a certified financial planner.

Tony is a licensed insurance broker and holds series 6 and 63 securities licenses.

Personal Interest:

Tony has a love for animals, the outdoors and helping others succeed. When not working, Tony can be found hanging out with his friends, family, dog Wasabi and cat Opie.  He enjoys hiking, fishing, camping, gardening, bowling and traveling with his girlfriend Dianna. He is a 1st Degree Black Belt in American Kenpo, prefers keeping active, and likes watching the New England Patriots.

His passion for helping people extends into his personal pursuits, where he dedicates his time as a founding Board Member for the local non-profit Regenerative Roots Association; a 501 (c) (3) organization, which focuses on food sustainability in the Merrimack River Valley. He feels this type of work keeps him grounded, continually learning, and allows him to give back to others within the community.
