TrustBank, a pillar of the local financial industry for over 100 years, is pleased to announce that Jon J. Racklin will be joining TrustBank as a Senior Trust Officer starting March 16, 2015. TrustBank plans to expand its existing services by offering complete wealth management, trust, and estate services to the local community. Jon will bring a well rounded skill set to the TrustBank team.
TrustBank’s President and CEO Dan Eichelberger stated, “It is an honor and great opportunity to have Jon Racklin join our team. Jon provides a unique combination of expertise and personality that exemplifies what TrustBank is known for.”
Jon has been practicing law with Clark & Racklin, Ltd. in Olney, Illinois since 2005. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. In 2005, Jon received a Juris Doctor Degree and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from the University of Illinois. While at the University of Illinois, Jon received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Estate Planning.
Jon is extremely excited about the opportunities that TrustBank’s expanded wealth management and trust department will bring to the community. When asked about his new position with TrustBank, Jon stated, “Since 2005, I have helped clients with their estate planning needs, such as wills, trusts, and estates, but I was only able to help them on the legal side of things. This new position will allow me to help clients with a complete package of trust and estate services.”
Jon further went on to say, “There is a huge need in this community for a comprehensive, team-based approach to wealth management. Right now, TrustBank is at the forefront of providing these services to the local community. TrustBank has perfected this model in their Arizona locations, and now is the ideal time to offer these services to the citizens of Richland County and the surrounding area.”
Jon concluded by noting, “There are no other financial institutions in Richland County that offer the complete package of services that will be available through TrustBank. In the past, customers would have to travel out of town to find these types of services. I am excited that we can now offer these services locally in order to keep business within the community.”
Anyone that is interested in speaking to Jon about the services that TrustBank has to offer should contact TrustBank’s main branch at 618-395-4311 to arrange for an appointment.
