Kristin McLauchlan


As the company’s founder and visionary, Kristin McLauchlan leads Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices in its efforts to consistently deliver the highest level of service to its families. Under her leadership, the company has emerged as one of the leading Multi-Family Offices for families with multi-generational wealth in North Florida.

Kristin has been involved in trust and investment services since 1990, when she served as first vice president and trust officer of SunTrust Bank, North Florida. During her tenure there, Kristin managed the trust and investment services for the Bank’s most affluent market.  At Legacy Trust, Kristin concentrates on creating a differentiated offering for the ultra-affluent.  Her strategic approach to growing each family’s assets includes an analysis of their overall situation and primary goals.  Kristin’s focus remains on building the company through client relationships and new offerings, with particular emphasis in trust and estate tax strategies, family foundations and overall family wealth planning.

Mrs. McLauchlan holds a degree in Economics from the University of Michigan and is a graduate of the Florida Bankers Association’s Graduate Trust School.  She is actively involved in the community and volunteers with a range of local nonprofits. Kristin served for many years on the Board of Directors for Ronald McDonald House Charities, has been active with The Bolles School, Art with A Heart, and the Gabriel House of Care. Kristin’s most recent passion and accomplishment has been working with her fellow Lifework Leadership Board Members to open a coffee shop in Jacksonville Beach called Cup of Jōb. The goal with the Cup of Jōb Community Café is to uplift the homeless population by offering a job training and placement program while also giving the community a place to gather for a cup of joe and quality food.
