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.

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!
