Meet Kenny, who is with AmeriTrust in Tulsa and has been with us for 8 years.
Q. What led you to Argent and what makes it unique?
A. I began my career with Heritage Trust Company before it combined with Argent in 2013. What led me to Heritage is the same reason Heritage chose to partner with the Argent family, they shared the same values and commitment in serving the needs of their clients and community. In 2017, I moved to Tulsa and began working for AmeriTrust who, like Heritage and Argent, understood the responsibility of being a fiduciary is about delivering every client a highly personalized service that is in the client’s best interest. A year later, AmeriTrust merged with Argent. Throughout all the changes, what makes Argent unique is having a culture that understands what being a fiduciary means. According to our CEO, Kyle McDonald, “Being a fiduciary means you are in the service business, and to serve someone you must place your needs behind the needs of the other – i.e., be humble – but you also must have confidence in your abilities, or your service will be of little value.”
Q. Why do you enjoy working at Argent?
A. As Mike Carroll used to say, “Simply put, we are in the people business.” Our clients know we truly have their best interest at heart. I love the opportunity to serve our clients and help people.
Q. What does the company mean to you?
A. Argent is not just a business to me; it is family. I consider it a great honor and privilege to have worked with Mike Carroll and now Harvie Roe. They both saw a great need for an independent trust company in Oklahoma that was focused on putting clients’ interests first and could be seen as true partners for their clients.
Q. What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Argent?
A. To remain focused on taking care of our clients and to keep our clients at the center of Argent Financial Group.
Q. What is a random fact about you?
A. I was the mascot for the Crandall Pirates in high school.
Q. What is your favorite quote?
A. “The choices that you make with your family today will determine the quality of life in your family tree for generations to come.” – Steve Farrar
