Fiduciary Trust International appoints Director of Delaware Trust Administration & Trust Counsel


Fiduciary Trust International, a global wealth manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton, has appointed Darlene Marchesani as director of Delaware trust administration and trust counsel, based in its Wilmington office.“Darlene is a well-respected expert on tax and fiduciary law, as well as the tax and wealth protection advantages that Delaware provides,” says Gerard F Joyce, Jr, national head of trust & estates at Fiduciary Trust International. “Her more than 25 years of experience of managing complex, sensitive planning structures and family relationships will help us bring financial peace of mind to more clients as we continue to expand our trust and estates offering.”

In her new role, Marchesani, who reports to Joyce, is responsible for Fiduciary Trust International’s Delaware trust administration business, including directed trust services, for US and international clients. Marchesani was most recently trust counsel and managing director of Delaware trust services at Evercore Trust Co. Prior to Evercore, she served as vice president and senior fiduciary advisor at Wilmington Trust Co. Earlier in her career, Marchesani was vice president, and senior trust and fiduciary specialist, at Wells Fargo Private Bank. She also worked as an estate planning and tax attorney at several law firms.

“As we come to the end of an especially challenging year, we remain focused on collaborating with clients to grow and protect their wealth for generations to come,” says Lawrence A Sternkopf, president and chief operating officer of Fiduciary Trust International. “Darlene’s wide-ranging areas of specialty—from Delaware trust and estate administration and tax planning to business succession planning—will be extremely useful for guiding high-net-worth individuals and their families through all market conditions.”

Ms. Marchesani earned her JD, and LLM in taxation, from Widener University School of Law. She also graduated from the University of Delaware with a BA in political science.
