IDAHO FALLS -- John Kociolek has taken a position with Bank of Idaho as a Vice President and Trust Officer. He will be responsible for day-to-day trust and estate administration, as well  as new business development in the Boise area. 

Kociolek has been in the trust and estate business since 1980. He has previously  served as the National Estate Settlement Manager for Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh;  Market Trust Executive for Bank of America in Tampa and Orlando and was recently  the National Trust and Estate Manager for Capital Bank and Trust Company in Reno,  NV. 

"We're fortunate to land a candidate with John's credentials," said Bank of Idaho VP  and Trust Department Manager Jeremy Parkinson. "Our clients will directly benefit  from the depth and breadth of knowledge he brings to the table." 

The hire allows Parkinson to focus his energy on big-picture strategy and growth. 

"With a staff of nine now, we're really able to give all of our clients a personal touch,  which is really important in trust and wealth management work." Parkinson said.  "We're not just managing investments, we're helping people plan for the future. We  advise them in lots of different areas of their financial world." 

Parkinson said that although he and his staff have had great success working  remotely with their clients over the past year, they will all welcome a return to face to-face conversations. 

"The better we know people, the better we're able to help them, and for that, there's  no substitute for meeting in person," Parkinson said. “We've assembled a great team  of experts, but we are continuing to look for opportunities to grow in the Boise  market and eastern Idaho. I believe we're assembling the best team of trust and  wealth experts of any community bank in the state.”
