MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Woodbury Financial, Inc., part of one of the largest independent broker-dealer networks in the nation, recently added three financial advisors to its extensive network. Mark Mappa, CFP®, Paul Hutton and Jill Slayton, CFP® join Woodbury Financial with more than $236 million in total client assets. This marks the start of a strong year for Woodbury after adding more than $1.3 billion in total client assets in 2015.
Based in Buffalo Grove, Ill., Mappa is President and Wealth Manager at Mappa Wealth Management and joins Woodbury with more than $100 million in total client assets. He has provided financial guidance to clients for nearly 30 years and specializes in retirement distribution planning, helping clients manage their assets and income during their retirement years.
Paul Hutton is President of Hutton Financial Advisors headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. He joins Woodbury with more than $73 million in total client assets. Hutton has been in the financial services investment industry since 1997 and specializes in investment and retirement planning.
Jill Slayton, CFP® is President of Slayton Wealth Management located in Rockwall, Texas.

As President of Slayton Wealth Management, her current focus is to help her clients navigate through today’s complex financial landscape. Slayton joins Woodbury with more than $63 million in total client assets.
Woodbury Financial had a strong year in 2015 – reaching close to $16 million in recruiting gross commissions – and has continued to build on that momentum so far in 2016 with the addition of Mappa, Hutton and Slayton. The firm’s recruiting success is driven largely by their Regional Vice Presidents and supported by a national advertising campaign. Woodbury’s success is also evident in the firm’s recruitment of more advisors generating more than $1 million in Gross Dealer Concessions, in both individual and team offices.
“Last year was an exciting year for our recruiting team and, with the additions of Mark, Paul and Jill in Q1, we’re looking forward to another strong year in 2016,” said Rick Fergesen, President and CEO of Woodbury Financial. “We’re pleased to welcome these exceptional advisors to Woodbury, and we’re confident that the extensive resources, tools and technology that we offer to advisors will enable them to better serve their clients and continue to grow their businesses.”
