(Jacob looking extra studly for his promotion)

We are overjoyed to share Jacob’s story and accomplishments as he embarks on a new adventure. Jacob started in our firm in 2016 as an entry level account representative learning the basics of sales and marketing and worked his way up our Management Training Program. He grew up in Marfa, a small Texas town, where he developed a competitive nature from playing football, basketball, baseball, and track. In 2015, Jacob graduated from The University of North Texas with a degree in Psychology. After college, he joined the Global Outreach Group and travelled to Costa Rica to establish a family camp program, the Campamento Roblealto, and took on various aid projects. His passion for helping people, coupled with his work ethic and infectious positive attitude are characteristics our president, Adrian Hyde, noticed right off the bat.

(The expansion crew: Isell, Tre, Jacob, Jason, Elizabeth)

Growing up Jacob’s father instilled two life lessons, which guided him throughout his journey at our firm, “No matter what you do, you be the best at it!” and “Never forget who you are.” With these two lessons in hand, Jacob demonstrated a relentless attitude in not only attacking his goals but making sure he helped everyone reach their goals. We believe in winning as a team here at Trust Group. At our celebratory party, Adrian spoke of Jacob’s ability to help people understand their “why” and purpose in life. These distinctive traits attribute to what makes Jacob a true leader and why his crew will follow him anywhere.

He will be leading a talented crew, Tre, Jason, Isell, Ernest, and Elizabeth to represent a new client in our portfolio.  We are ecstatic to see this expansion crew accomplish major milestones, as they conquer Tulsa. Jacob’s new goals include providing the same opportunity given to him, expanding and representing a client overseas, and starting a nonprofit organization to continue impacting as many lives as possible.

This promotion celebration was bittersweet, full of happy tears, laughter, fun field stories, and countless best wishes. We will miss his entertaining beat-boxing, funny jokes, and big ole smile, but here’s to crushing new goals and dominating Tulsa!

Game Night = Best Company Culture

Game Night = Best Company Culture

Trust Group, Inc is excited to announce we are a Best and Brightest company to work for in Dallas!

We attribute our amazing company culture to this prestigious award. How did we create such an amazing culture?

First, we make sure we have the right team members, then we add in cool factors like an arcade room, putting green, foosball table, and a few slices of pie. Here are some pictures from our Game Night we hosted at our office. Our team members enjoyed playing Uno, Heads Up, poker, foosball, hole in one, and old school arcade games. We had a blast!!!

But how does playing a quick game of Ms Pacman or foosball lead to success? We believe that when people enjoy what they do they naturally perform at higher levels. These “games” might seem insignificant to some, but they get the blood pumping and increase the competitiveness in the room. In the end, this yields higher performances and results.

We know company culture is not all base on just playing games, so we make sure we provide an environment where we work as a team to provide excellency for our clients, customers, and colleagues. We encourage our team members to work together as well as individually to set and meet daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. Goals that will challenge each team member to grow and develop professionally and personally.

With growth as a major component at our firm, our goal is to expand into three additional markets. Here’s to another incredible year for 2018!!!

History of Trust Group, Inc told by CEO, Adrian

History of Trust Group, Inc told by CEO, Adrian

Do you ever wonder who is behind Trust Group, Inc.? We had the opportunity to have an exclusive interview with our CEO, Adrian. You don’t want to miss this!

Trust Group: Person that inspires you to be successful and why?

Adrian: My pop. No matter what the situation, he would never lose his cool or focus. People were naturally drawn to him. He just had such compassion and charisma. I love and miss that man each day.

Trust Group: Favorite things about being President of Trust Group?

Adrian: My amazing team, the freedom to make my own decisions, and the ability to provide opportunities for others.

Trust Group: What do you think most attributed to your success?

Adrian: A relentless mentality to keep going no matter what challenges may arise and surrounding myself with a strong support system.

Trust Group: What advice would you give someone embarking on this career path?

Adrian: Be patient with yourself- champions are not built in a day. Understand there will be ups and downs in life; when things are up, work hard. When things are down, work harder.

Trust Group: Favorite past times?

Adrian: Baseball, traveling, and spending time with my beautiful wife and family.

Trust Group: Favorite movie?

Adrian: Top Gun. I have a cat named Maverick. Next are two dogs, Goose and Iceman.

Trust Group: What are your professional and personal goals for the future?

Adrian: Professionally: Expand our company by the end of 2018. Become the # 1 office for our client in the nation.

Personally: Build my wife the house of her dreams and start our family. Have the capability to take care of my family, team, and friends.

Trust Group: What made you want to be an entrepreneur?

Adrian: My parents were entrepreneurs. I grew up watching them grow a small security business in 1976 with just the two of them. They expanded to over a thousand employees nationwide by 1986. They were the true definition of work ethic and persistent dedication. I always knew I could never work for someone- one of my biggest fear is to be someone’s employee. I want to be in charge of my own destiny.

Trust Group: What did you do before starting Trust Group?

Adrian: I started out working with Terminix as a termite helper. I was responsible for inspecting homes and spraying for insects. I knew right away, I did not want crawl into dark spaces or hot attics the rest of my life so I started up selling customers for higher services. Within months, I became the highest sales rep in the area. I took the money I had saved to open a dry-cleaning business with my friend. I also managed restaurants and night clubs in New York.

Trust Group: What are some challenges you had to overcome in life or business and how did you do it?

Adrian: First challenge was learning to put others before myself. I was not used to this mentality. But once I finally learned to put others first, I began to have a bigger purpose and vision for success. Second challenge was holding myself to a higher standard daily, not just when I felt like it. Third is asking for help. I used to avoid anything that was a weakness of mine, but now I seek help from coaches, books, team members, family, and any resources in order to improve.

Trust Group: What are key factors to success?

Adrian: The 3-D Effect: Desire, Dedication, and Discipline. When you have all three, your vision will become clear and tangible.

Trust Group: If you can have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

Adrian: My pops. It has been 17 years since his passing, but not a day goes by that I do not miss him. For alive person, it would be Derek Jeter. I would pick his brain on his leadership ability on and off the field.
