DALLAS—Wilmington Trust, N.A. is expanding its M&A Escrow and Paying Agent group with two senior hires in the Dallas, Texas office. Amy Perkins was hired as an M&A relationship manager, and Greg Stites was added as a client development officer. In addition to growing staffing in the Dallas office to 10, Stites and Perkins join a team of more than 30 M&A specialists across the country.
Wilmington Trust established the Dallas office in 2012, providing support for public finance, business escrow, M&A, and corporate debt deals in Texas and surrounding states.  The firm has provided corporate trust services for more than a century. Wilmington Trust’s Global Capital Markets division continues to grow its corporate and institutional business in the United States and internationally. The division has dramatically grown its M&A practice in recent years, offering escrow agent, disbursement agent, and paying agent services, as well as investment options and 1099 tax reporting services.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to bring Amy and Greg over to our team,” said Patrick Trainor, senior vice president in Wilmington Trust’s Global Capital Markets division. “Together they bring more than 50 years of expertise in the financial industry. They’ll fit right in with our experienced team, which has consistently provided first-rate service for many years to our rapidly growing customer base.”
As client development officer for the M&A team, Greg Stites is responsible for directing the sales and marketing efforts for Wilmington Trust’s escrow and paying agent services throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico.
He brings 26 years of banking experience to Wilmington Trust, with 20 years invested in corporate trust roles, overseeing sales for a broad array of products, along with expertise in trust administration and management. Previously Stites worked as a business development representative for Wells Fargo Bank in Austin, Texas covering the Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas markets, along with servicing large corporate clients on the West Coast.
Stites received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from Texas A&M University. He earned the Certified Corporate Trust Specialist (CCTS) designation from the American Bankers Association in 2005.
He will be operating out of Austin, supporting Wilmington Trust’s Dallas office located at 15950 North Dallas Parkway, Suite 550. Stites can be contacted at 512-318-4093.

Over the past 12 years, she focused on managing M&A and corporate escrow products. Prior to joining the company, she worked for Wells Fargo in the Corporate Trust division.
