For nearly 40 years I have had the privilege of being a trusted advisor to numerous families and institutions primarily in the Ashtabula area.
My focus has always been clients first and to treat people the way that I would want to be treated. So, I first begin by listening- listening to client’s concerns, sensitivities, and goals, and understanding their family’s relationships and ambitions. The scope of our advice does not begin and end with investments but includes advice on Social Security, risk management, long term care, and effective estate planning strategies. We employ a discriminating investment style applying primarily outside and independent research. Wealth and its creation is a by-product of many years of labor which I take very seriously and building it can be just as much about not losing it as getting sufficient return on it. We make it a point to focus on both.
I am a graduate of the Indiana University and hold the designation of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional in addition to being an active member of the Investments & Wealth Institute. As the founding partner of Huffman-Mayer-Paolo Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, I have particularly enjoyed working with exemplary staff who all share our mission to serve our clients with excellence. I have been awarded Premier Advisor status by my firm for each of the past 10 years.1
My charitable interests and involvement are numerous but I particularly enjoy my church and the fellowship surround that community and am a past president of Kiwanis and the Ashtabula Chamber of Commerce.
More than anything else. I am most proud to be the father of eight children who have matured into their own right to be productive, useful citizens in our great country with spouses who are every bit as delightful. My ten grandchildren are also a great sense of pride and joy. When not pursuing family event I enjoy travel, hiking, and athletics.
Whether our clients are in the accumulation, preservation, or distribution phase of their financial lives, everyone here at Huffman-Mayer-Paolo takes great pride in holding to a client centric model. Our combined staff boasts over 285 years of experience in financial services who consistently deliver professional yet caring expertise. If you are not already enjoying our group, I sincerely hope you will.

Although I offer a variety of investment vehicles, I believe that advisory-based account management focuses on the long-term benefits of one’s financial strategy. Because I am paid a percentage of the value of the assets in your account, instead of the traditional commission fees, I have a personal stake in the success of your investments. Through these money-management programs, we can develop an individualized plan that helps meet your needs for safety, growth and income.
I look forward to working with you on your financial blueprint, and helping you to achieve your financial objectives.
