Cecil Staton, CFP® CSLP®

  • I started Arch Financial Planning to make a difference in people’s lives. Most firms focus on investments or making a sale without understanding their client’s ‘why’. I set out to change that.
  • We help our clients pay down student loans, reduce taxes, invest smarter, and retire confidently on their terms.
  • After earning my bachelor’s degree in Financial Planning from the University of Georgia, I worked for several firms in Atlanta, GA. I now call Athens, GA home.

When not perfecting financial plans, you’ll find me visiting our favorite local brewery, sipping coffee with my wife and F1B golden doodle, and visiting family in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
