A message from the Desk of Tom Wilkins

Trust Company of Oklahoma Professionals Update

One more year has come and gone. One more year of joy and – sometimes – worry. While we had plenty of reasons to celebrate and be hopeful, there were times we worried and spent nights awake. It was, fortunately, another year to be grateful for those who surround us, for the joys of life, for friends and family.

We continue to enjoy the relationships we’ve developed over the years at TCO. Most of our clients have become friends, and we take pride in helping them purchase homes, plan for retirement, expand their businesses, fund their children’s college, enjoy their grandchildren, and pass on savings. None of that would be possible without the committed work of our employees, who embody our mission to protect our clients’ assets, grow their wealth, and advise them for life.

I am glad to share with you the news that Steve McQuade, Philip Mock, Doug Castle, and Andrea Esparza earned promotions in December. Steve and Philip are now senior vice presidents. Doug became an assistant vice president, and Andrea was promoted to investment officer. Please join me in congratulating these exceptional employees.

I am also proud to share the news that vice president Whittney Stauffer earned her Certified Financial Planner designation, and retirement plan services specialist Glenda Vaughn attained her Qualified 401(k) Administrator credential.

Once again, thank you for allowing us to serve you. I wish each of you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2019.
