Professional trust & estate management
made personal

Because your trust is our business

Let's get started
I am

We’re celebrating 30 years

And there is so much more to come

In the cold winter months of 1989-1990, Steve Trefts began Northwest Trustee & Management Services in the basement of his house with his first client: a train-jumping man with no home address. Thirty years later, our business has transformed into a leading independent trust company that spans across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska. We are proud to announce that Steve’s son-in-law, Greg Bowman, is now the owner and CEO, while Steve continues to serve as President. As our company has transitioned between generations, we have a renewed vision for serving your family into the future.

So what makes us different?

Professional trust and estate management is our passion and sole focus. We do it well, and this has led us to become experts in the Northwest.

Trust management is complicated, and requires an exceptional team. We know the importance of teamwork and relationships – which is why we work with the team you choose.

You will always be a person to us, not an account. You can always depend on being able to talk to your trust officer who knows you and is prepared to listen, answer questions, and help solve problems.

You can count on us to serve your future generations with consistent integrity and accountability.
