Our story

ProTrustee was created to help trustees fulfill their fiduciary duties, better serve their clients, and achieve optimal business outcomes. Through years of hands-on experience managing trusts, our founding team identified the need for a modern platform to help trust administrators solve daily pain points and increase their efficiency. ProTrustee is the result of this combined experience and inspiration. With a focus on compliance, collaboration, and productivity, ProTrustee has been thoughtfully built from the ground up with the goal of bringing a totally fresh approach to the technology landscape for trust administration.
