The Story of How Molly Became a Board Member of Caldwell Trust Company
"Kelly and I were always close," says Director MaryAnn "Molly" C. Kraut, D.V.M., of her one-year-younger brother, R.G. "Kelly" Caldwell, Jr., CEO and president of Caldwell Trust Company. They are two of the three children of Annette and Roland Caldwell, founder of the trust company. Their other sibling, Debbie, lives in Houston.
"I grew up with the knowledge of taking care of people in the trust business. Family and relationships have always been important to us. We learned a strong work ethic, and service has always been very important. We grew up with economic lectures at the dinner table," Molly says, "so I had my own business from the beginning of my career. Also, following the entrepreneurial spirit of my family, I will soon be launching another new business. I believe in the core values of this country and I believe in Caldwell Trust."
