Sharon J. Pryse, founder/CEO of The Trust Company, led a team of her staff to work out in the West Side Y’s new spin studio on Thursday. She was greeted by Jim Dickson, president and CEO of YMCA of East Tennessee, and a posted sign: “The Trust Company Pryse Family Spin Studio.”
The West Side Y is currently undergoing major renovations. Pryse and The Trust Company contributed $50,000 toward that effort. Naming the all-new spin studio was a “thank you” from the Y.
It’s not unusual to see staff of The Trust Company working out together, said Lindsay Cates, the firm’s marketing director. “They often work out at the Downtown Y.”
Scott Bird called it “fiscal fitness experts demonstrating physical fitness.”
The Trust Company is a Knoxville-based financial investment firm. Daniel Carter is the president. And, yes, he was on the spin bike next to Pryse at the workout. The firm includes 75 professionals including attorneys and accountants. It has offices in West Knoxville, Johnson City and Chattanooga.
