BIRMINGHAM, Alabama, June 19, 2019 – Argent Trust Company announced today that Mollie Seymour has been promoted to Birmingham market president. She will continue to report to Argent Trust Company President Ken Alderman and be responsible for directing and managing all fiduciary activity for the Birmingham team.

With 14 years of experience in the trust industry, Seymour came to Argent from Regions Private Wealth Management in Birmingham, where she was vice president and trust adviser. She joined Argent in 2018 as senior vice president and trust officer in the Birmingham office, where she worked closely with individuals, families and endowments.

“We’re so pleased to name Mollie as Birmingham market president,” Alderman said. “Throughout her time at Argent, Mollie has proven that she has all the attributes needed to thrive in this position. Her interpersonal skills combined with her in-depth knowledge of our industry will allow her to continue leading our growing team in a positive direction.”

“I could not be more grateful for this opportunity,” said Seymour. “As a long-time resident of Birmingham, I am passionate about this city and our community. I look forward to continue spearheading an incredible team of talented individuals who provide exceptional fiduciary service to our clients.”

Seymour received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. She is also a graduate of the American Bankers Association’s National Graduate Trust School. Her industry memberships include the Estate Planning Council of Birmingham and the Alabama Association of Charitable Gift Planners.

Seymour will lead a Birmingham office team, that in less than three years, has grown from two to 20 team members.
