The Senior Trust Operations Specialist will directly report to the Vice President of Operations and will participate primarily in trust operations functions, but will also be expected to handle some trust administration, accounting, and compliance responsibilities. 

Operations duties will include:

            This individual will interact with other staff to facilitate and execute proper account closing and trust operations functions.
