Broker Check

John Tilton

As a Financial Planner, I provide my clients with a custom plan that helps them navigate through the complex world of retirement planning, investment strategies, tax planning, and insurance options (life, healthcare, disability, long term care, etc.).  My goal is to create long term relationships with my clients, helping them adjust their plan and retirement path, as life events and unforeseen situations arise.   

While I am relatively new to financial planning, it has long been a plan of mine to follow in my father’s footsteps. My dad was a financial advisor in Oregon for nearly 40 years and I was lucky enough to help him out in his final two years before he retired.  In my career prior to joining Northeast Planning Associates, I have worked in a variety of consulting and service positions, including Darling’s here in Maine and IMG Sports Academy in Florida before that. 

Finding an experienced and respected financial planner to partner with was a key part of making my decision to start working with individuals and families on their financial future.  Daren Seekins is a well-known fixture in our community, having worked with clients in the Bangor/Hampden area for nearly 15 years, both independently and through his partnership with Maine Savings Credit Union, where we both assist members with their financial planning and investment needs. 

I currently hold my Series 7 and 66 registrations through LPL Financial. I studied Communications and Business Management at Palm Beach Atlantic University in Florida. 

My wife Emily and I live in Bangor, ME. In my spare time, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities (including tennis, golf, hiking, and skiing), as well as spending time with family and exploring the Maine coast.
