Southeastern Trust Opens Atlanta Office

Southeastern Trust Company recently marked the official opening of its newest office situated in the West Paces Ferry neighborhood in Atlanta. The office is led by Robert Fell, Managing Director of Southeastern Trust, who has been overseeing the firm’s continued growth in the Atlanta market. With the addition and renovation of this office space at The Forum at West Paces, Southeastern Trust solidified its footprint as one of the south’s leading trust companies. 

“Atlanta continues to be a high-growth area, and we are excited to have a permanent location from which we can provide even more hands-on service to our clients. Every market is different just like every client is different. This new location provides us the proximity we need to respond to the unique needs of high net worth families and business leaders in one of America’s fastest-growing cities,” says Fell. 

Since becoming a Tennessee-chartered trust company four years ago, the firm has built a reputation throughout the southeast for its expertise in advising and building unique solutions for high-net-worth families and business leaders. The firm provides a family office experience and a holistic approach to wealth management.

In addition to its multi-family office services, families across the country depend on Southeastern Trust for its expertise in trust administration. Gail Bickford-Payne is relocating from Chattanooga to serve in the Atlanta office as trust officer for clients throughout the region. Gail has over 16 years of experience in trust and estate administration, including managing real estate held in trust. Families across the country benefit from her years of experience establishing and administering special needs trusts. 

“Trust is more than just part of our name, it is the heart of our business,” says Gail. “I consider it an honor to help families design their legacy to ensure the people they love and care for are properly represented in their estate plan. It’s an important part of how we help clients design a life well spent.”
