SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Jan 7, 2014

Baird announced today that Tina L. Schlichting has been named Branch Manager of the firm’s Sheboygan, Wis., wealth management office. Paul A. Stenklyft, who had managed the office since 1980, will continue to serve clients as a financial advisor, as will Schlichting in her new role.

“With more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, Tina is highly qualified to lead our Sheboygan office and continue to grow Baird’s presence in the region,” said Matt Curley, Regional Director for Baird’s Private Wealth Management group. “We thank Paul for his outstanding level of dedication during his 34 years as branch manager and look forward to him continuing his practice as a financial advisor.”

Schlichting began her career in 1993 with the former brokerage firm A.G. Edwards. She joined Baird in 1997 as a sales assistant and became a financial advisor in 2001. Schlichting is a member of the Sheboygan Economics Club. She lives in Plymouth with her husband David and their children.

Baird’s wealth management business encompasses more than 800 financial advisors serving clients through more than 80 offices in 26 states, and has client assets of more than $100 billion. Last year, Baird acquired the former McAdams Wright Ragen, Inc. (MWR), an investment firm headquartered in Seattle. As a result, more than 80 financial advisors from six offices in Washington state (Anacortes, Bellevue, Mount Vernon, Seattle, Spokane and Yakima) and one office in Portland, Ore., joined Baird.
