Meet Melissa Garner, who is with Argent Trust in Shreveport and has been with us for 14 years.
Q. What led you to Argent and what makes it unique?
A. I came to Argent fresh out of grad school, looking for a company that I could have a career with. I found it! I learned that there is nothing mundane about managing people’s wealth. There are so many components to it, and every day is something new.
Q. Why do you enjoy working at Argent?
A. I love having a career where I am never bored, and I love living it alongside such wonderful colleagues.
Q. What does the company mean to you?
A. Stability, family, professionalism, personal and professional growth.
Q. What has been your proudest moment at Argent?
A. I have quite a few trust beneficiaries that were children when I came to Argent and are now young adults. My proudest moments are when I have been able to help them understand their wealth and take an active role in managing it for their future.
Q. What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Argent?
A. That massage chair we keep asking Gary to approve for us in the Shreveport office!
Q. If you could have any other job for one day, what would it be?
A. Quality control for puppy toys. I’d just play with puppies all day!
