An 80th Birthday Cella-bration!

Cella Quinn has broken many barriers in business, holding many “firsts”: she was the first woman hired as a broker by Omaha Merrill Lynch in 1972. Recruited by Smith Barney, she was the first woman in their Chairman’s Club.  Cella served as the first woman president of the Rotary Club of Omaha (Downtown Rotary) in 1996-97. In 2011, she was named Businesswoman of the Year by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce. Today’s Omaha Woman, a publication of The Women’s Fund, featured her on its Fall 2008 issue as an expert in the art of networking. She has shown hundreds of women how to connect successfully to help one another thrive and lead.  

A 1971 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with degrees in political science and journalism, Cella was a news reporter with the Lincoln Journal and the Associated Press. She was awarded the UNL Alumni Achievement Award in 2014.

Later this year, Cella will be honored as the Midlands Business Journal’s Woman of Distinction at its prominent 40 under 40 awards celebration. A member of MENSA, Cella put her savvy business acumen to work in founding Cella Quinn Investment Services, where she guided clients through smart investments focused on her process, “How the Comfortably Rich Get and Stay That Way®."     After 45 years as a financial advisor, she successfully sold her business in 2017. A member of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, she and her husband, Mac McCallum, live with Duke, a rescued Maine Coon cat.
