Southeastern Trust Adds New Trust Associate

Southeastern Trust recently added Melea Butler to its team to assist with trust administration. Ms. Butler joined the team in June 2022 after earning her BBA in Trust and Wealth Management from Campbell University.

As a trust associate, Ms. Butler becomes part of the rapidly growing trust administration team who serves clients to make sure their estate plan is properly documented and records are maintained to ensure the proper protection and distribution of their assets. Ms. Butler received her education at Campbell University which is distinguished as one of the nation’s leading educational institutions specializing in trust and wealth administration.

“Due to the fast growth we’ve experienced in our trust department, we always keep an eye out for talented associates who have a high trajectory for growth,” says Teresa Whitton, president of Southeastern Trust. “We are excited to have Melea join our team and believe she is a key addition to make sure we can continue to help our clients design a life well spent.”

As an independent Tennessee-chartered trust company, Southeastern Trust helps families plan for the future. Trusts can be used to manage and protect assets, avoid probate, and assist with tax planning. The company’s specialized team assesses each client’s unique circumstances to help them form a personal strategy.
