"Dick is a fantastic business consultant who has actually lived the talk for 40+ years running both big and medium sized trust companies.  A great listener who is not afraid to tell you his opinion and not simply what you want to hear, his pragmatic approach to being a consultant combined with deep connections in the industry have been invaluable to our company's growth.  He is truly the first call I make when we need help – whether that is staffing challenges, growing pains, software upgrades, fee structures, or pitch documents!"

"I worked with Dick Trumpler for six years while he led our team by focusing on the strengths of each individual, creating a cohesive, goals-based group. We consistently met our goals and had fun in the process.  I recently had the opportunity to work with Dick on a project to analyze my current business to potentially expand the scope of the business.  He patiently guided me through the, planning and budgeting process, while pointing out many items I had not considered.  His approach to consulting is goals-oriented, professional and transparent.  I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Dick again and highly recommend his services to improve, enhance and grow a trust business."
