Anthony A. Guthrie, Chairman of the Board of TMI Trust Company commented, “Salem Trust Company’s expertise in custody services is a plug-and-play addition to the TMI family of services.

The synergy between TMI and Salem Trust creates a bridge for these services across the broad client spectrum.”
Steven B. Eason, CEO of TMI Trust Company added, “Bringing together TMI and Salem Trust Companies creates a solid foundation of trust and custody services for the institutional and government market segments.” Eason added, “With little to no impact on the clients, we will be positioned to provide the broad spectrum of services often required, in a single-source solution.”
