Trustmark's program has grown about 40% since Zito took the reins in 2006-a time with no shortage of turbulence in the market. His goal is to remain focused on recruiting, he says, to keep the team performing at a high level. He believes that the right advisors are self-motivated and just need guidance, which is why he keeps an open door and doesn't micro-manage.
