New Team Members!

By The Trust Company on January 22, 2021

We are excited to introduce two recent additions to The Trust Company team! Please join us in welcoming Heather Culwell and Tracy Robinson to our Manattan office.

Welcome, Heather Culwell!

Heather Culwell
A 2020 addition to our Manhattan staff, Heather’s responsibilities as Account Administrator include client account setup and maintenance, trust and estate settlement, and overall support to the Schotte Client Service Team.

“I am so excited and honored to be a member of The Trust Company. I am looking forward to assisting all our clients realize their financial goals.”

A graduate of Kansas State University, Heather holds a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with an emphasis in Production Management—a natural fit, having grown up on a farm in St. Francis, KS.  In her previous role as Farm Loan Specialist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency, she provided program assistance and oversight to the Farm Loan division across Kansas.

A passion for helping people is what led Heather to her current pursuit of a master’s degree in Personal Financial Planning at KSU, which she anticipates earning in 2022.


Welcome, Tracy Robinson!

Tracy Robinson
Tracy joined The Trust Company in a new role as Director of Client Development in 2020, after a long career at the Kansas State University Foundation.

With a bachelor’s degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management, a minor in Business Administration, and a career spent in fundraising, Tracy brings a unique skillset that complements The Trust Company’s focus on people and relationships. Tracy’s true passion is helping others and creating relationships built on trust.

“I love being able to help make magic happen for others, to connect people who have similar interests, to help people achieve their own goals, and to make the world just a bit better in doing so.”

Although she grew up in Arkansas City, KS, Tracy has called Manhattan home since 1996. She and her husband, Brett, have two children, Taryn and Brody. In her spare time, Tracy is busy watching her children’s sports activities or choral performances, volunteering in the community, enjoying time with friends, or traveling to explore new places.
