VP, Sr. Trust and Wealth Advisor

Lori J. Wilson joined Citizens Bank & Trust in 2008 and currently serves as a Senior Trust and Wealth Advisor in the Lakeland office. Lori’s primary focus centers on fiduciary administration, tax planning and managing client relationships.

Lori began her career as a CPA in Public Accounting, where she focused on trust, estate and personal taxation. In 1991, she joined Citizens and Southern Bank (now Bank of America) in their trust tax department and later transitioned to the role of Trust Advisor, where she could utilize her tax background and continue to focus on assisting families with financial and estate planning. Lori has worked with Bank of America, Citrus & Chemical Bank and SunTrust Bank.

Lori feels that building a client’s loyalty and trust are essential when designing and carrying out their future plans. She encourages families to create their own mission statement to aid in establishing their financial and estate plans, and gets great pleasure working closely with our clients and their families to ensure their needs and goals are met today, and for generations to come.
