Trustee is almost always a noun denoting a person or organization. Its main definitions are (1) one that holds legal title to property in order to administer it for a beneficiary, and (2) a member of a board directing the funds of an institution. It can also be a verb meaning to place in the care of a trustee, but it is rarely used in this sense.
