Firm earned the No. 9 spot on list from American Banker

Pinnacle Financial Partners is one to the 10 best banks to work for in the nation and No. 1 among banks with more than $11 billion in assets. The latest list of Best Banks to Work For from American Banker magazine ranks Pinnacle No. 9 among 90, with no other banks of similar asset size appearing on the list. This is the firm’s ninth consecutive appearance.

“We promise our associates a great place to work and our clients a great place to do business. They go hand in hand, and we’re delivering on a scale no one else can,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle's president and CEO. “If you look through this list of nearly 100 banks, you’ll see a lot of strong community institutions. What you won’t find are any of Pinnacle’s peers or major competitors. Not one bank on this list is anywhere near our asset size, proving that our firm offers something no one else can. We can meet nearly any need a client could have, but we also cultivate a tight-knit culture where associates feel like family. That combination of a community bank environment with the resources of a much larger institution is unique to Pinnacle.”

In previous years, Pinnacle has ranked No. 1 for its category (in 2013), No. 2 overall (in 2014), No. 3 (in 2015) and No. 6 (in 2016 and 2017) on this list. In 2018 and 2019, the firm ranked in the top 20, and in 2020 Pinnacle earned the No. 8 spot.
