ESOP (EMPLOYEE STOCK OWNERSHIP PLANS)
The Trust Division of PBI Bank has developed a very specialized niche serving as an independent corporate trustee for Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs).
Trustees are charged with the duty of operating the plan for the exclusive benefit of the plan participants and their beneficiaries, since conflicts of interest can easily arise when using internal trustees. For example, there is an inherent conflict of interest when a selling shareholder serves as the trustee or supervises the appointed trustee. If the trustees purchase shares at an inflated price, or take on more debt than is reasonable, substantial penalties could be paid. Also, individual trustees can be held personally liable. Therefore, it is wise to appoint a professional and independent ESOP trustee, such as PBI Bank, to handle all transactions. We have had the privilege of working with many of the leading attorneys and valuation experts in the industry, building a tremendous amount of knowledge in the ESOP area.
Our primary role has been serving as an independent transaction trustee for numerous purchase transactions. Other involvement includes serving as trustee to evaluate the sale of an ESOP-owned company to a larger non-ESOP company. In addition, we now serve as the ongoing corporate trustee for companies that are located in Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri, Indiana, and Maryland.
We use a team-oriented approach to manage fiduciary relationships. John Grider, the ESOP team leader, is a retired certified public accountant with BKD, LLP. He has many years of experience in the employee benefit and corporate tax fields. At PBI Bank we have the experience and the expertise to be a valuable resource for your company, but we can also provide the personal service your company deserves.
The trustee is responsible for making sure the plan is operated for the exclusive benefit of plan participants and their beneficiaries. Some of the services that PBI Bank provides for clients include:
- Serving as an independent transaction trustee for purchase transactions
- Evaluating the sale of one ESOP to another ESOP
- Serving as ongoing independent trustee for companies to relieve the fiduciary responsibility from key employees
- Performing due diligence work

- Receiving employer contributions, and making payments of ESOP debt
