Timothy J. Leahy, CLU®

Managing Partner/Financial Planner

“I see my job as helping my clients make logical well informed decisions. To do that I have to first learn and understand what is most important to them so I can understand how they think. Only then can I present and explain the pros and cons of their options to help them achieve their goals.”

As a financial advisor with Eagle Strategies LLC and the co-founder of Third 3rd Financial Partners, Tim Leahy focuses in helping clients define and achieve their retirement goals. His knowledge and experience is evident in the wide variety of client demographics that he serves, with differences in age, gender, background, and financial experience and objectives.

Tim is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) and he is also a lifetime qualifying member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT)1. Prior to entering the financial services industry, Tim graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy in 1979 with a Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering. He then earned a Master’s in Statistics and Operations Research from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, New York. To further his education, he has also earned the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) designation.

Mr. Leahy was in the Coast Guard for 20 years. Among other assignments, he served as a commanding officer of two ships and the Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service in New York Harbor in the late 1990s. He also taught college-level math at the Coast Guard Academy for four years. As an active member of his community, Tim supports the Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton, Massachusetts and is an active member of his church in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Tim has been married to Kathleen for 30 years, and they have three children. In his off time, Tim likes to read, follow Boston area sports teams, stay active by hiking with Kathleen, and training each year for the Cayuga Lake Triathlon in Ithaca, NY.

Patrick F. McKallagat, CFP®, CLU®

Partner/Financial Planner

“I view my role in my clients’ lives as helping them strike the balance between what their emotions are telling them to do and what the calculator is telling them to do. The best solution is often found somewhere in the middle.”

Financial advisor Patrick McKallagat prides himself in his ability to boil down the intimidating parts of financial planning into easy-to-understand concepts. The result is a planning process that is more comfortable for his clients. As a co-founder of Third 3rd Financial Partners, Patrick understands that it’s hard for his clients to picture themselves in retirement and what it takes to get there. That’s why Patrick and Tim endeavored to build the foundation of the company on helping clients have a successful third-third of their lives.

McKallagat is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM and has earned the Charter Life Underwriter® designation through The American College of Financial Services. He’s a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), qualifying member (2011/2012 & 2014-2019) of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT)1, and the Financial Managers Society (FMS). He married his high school sweetheart, Katie, in 2012, and they have a son, Jameson, and a daughter, Isla. They reside in Bradford, Massachusetts.
