Three overarching business strategies have guided Pinnacle since its inception:
Focus primarily on businesses, their owners and employees, as well as consumers
who desire more from their banking relationship than just the best price.
When we started the firm, we set out to be “more than a bank.” To accomplish
this, we had to be able to meet all the financial needs of a client – whether
at home or at work or when managing their assets. Pinnacle clients experience
the depth of products and services found in large national institutions while
also having the strong personal relationship with their financial advisor found
in community banks.
Hire and retain highly experienced and qualified financial services professionals.
We believe we take care of our clients better than anyone else in the market,
primarily because we attract and keep the most talented and experienced financial
professionals. We recruit and retain people with significant expertise, large
client followings and a strong likelihood of thriving in the client-centered
Pinnacle culture. These attributes give our clients confidence they will have
continuity and long-term relationships with their partners at Pinnacle.
Provide distinctive service, effective advice and extraordinary convenience
in exchange for premium pricing. Every Pinnacle associate focuses every
day on what it takes to deliver this brand promise. Our ultimate goal is to
“wow” every client. This means going beyond what is expected, such as good service,
and doing things that are always memorable. Our standard for wowing clients
is to provide the unexpected answers and anticipate their unspoken needs. In
our annual client survey, more than 98 percent rank us “recognizably better”
than our competitors.
