AUSTIN, Texas, June 21, 2018 – Argent Trust Company has hired Stephanie Allen as a wealth advisor in its Austin office.

Allen will work in a fiduciary role with Argent Trust Company clients. Argent’s Austin office opened in March and is one of six Texas locations for the Louisiana-based company.

Allen has 11 years of experience in trust and estate planning and administration, having begun working for an estate planning and probate law firm prior to and during law school. Before joining Argent, she was a trust officer/assistant vice president at Frost Wealth Advisors in Austin beginning in 2015. Previously, Allen was in private practice law as an estate planning and probate attorney with the Wiewel Law Firm.

“I hired Stephanie three years ago when I was with Frost and during that time she proved herself to be extremely loyal and excelled at helping clients navigate difficult and complex trust and estate administration,” said Austin Market President David Redding. “Argent Trust’s resources will allow her to succeed as a professional and provide her a culture in which she will thrive as a person and trusted advisor.”

“I am thrilled to work again with David and to be part of the amazing team at Argent Trust who embody the company’s philosophy of ‘humble confidence,’” said Allen. “I was raised in Austin and my entire professional career has been here. I’m eager to serve our clients and to help grow Argent’s presence in the Austin market.”

Allen received her law degree from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and her Bachelor of Science from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie. She also holds a Master of Laws in Taxation from the University of Alabama School of Law.
