New Year Updates
When I look back on 2022, the one word I would use to describe world events would be “turbulent.” We’ve witnessed rampant inflation, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, continued COVID-19 uncertainty, and still more inflation. Even though the world is a stormy place, the clients and employees of Trust Company of Oklahoma give me a sense of peace and calm.
As we ring in the new year, I’m pleased to share with you the news that Baylor Cashmore, Michelle Alvarado, and Kathy Turner each recently earned promotions. Baylor was promoted to Officer within our Operations Group, and Michelle was promoted to Officer within our Oil & Gas Division. Kathy is our newest Trust Officer.
I’m also excited to announce two new employees who have joined our team: Garrett Guinn and Stacey Curtis. Garrett has joined our investment team in Tulsa as an Assistant Vice President. A Texas native and graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Garrett comes to TCO from PricewaterhouseCoopers. Stacey might be a familiar name for some of our clients. She previously worked at TCO as a Trust Officer from 2010-15. She most recently served as a business development officer in Bank of Oklahoma’s Kansas City office. She returns to TCO as a Senior Vice President and the manager of our Retirement Plan Services group.
I also wanted to let you know of the retirement of Kathy King. Kathy joined TCO in 1985 and retired as Vice President. We are grateful for Kathy’s many loyal years of service and wish her a happy and healthy retirement.
Thank you for being part of our Trust Company of Oklahoma family. May each of you have a calm, healthy, and prosperous 2023.
