“Our charge in Atlanta was to build a team that could take full advantage of the tremendous economic opportunity here, and we’ve done that” said Rob Garcia, Pinnacle’s Atlanta president. “But we’re not finished. We’re humbled by the chance to build a strong bank for our hometown and bring more of Atlanta’s best bankers to ‘Team Pinnacle’ to give them a place where they can serve their clients better. We got it started and want more to join us to build on this momentum.”

Garcia and his leaders have grown the team to 40 local associates since opening their doors in January 2020, with eight new revenue producing associates coming on board so far in 2021. They include commercial and small business financial advisors, treasury management experts and a wealth advisor. All of the growth to this point has come from Pinnacle’s only office in Atlanta on Riverwood Drive. Later this year, the firm will open another location in Buckhead at 3379 Peachtree Road NE.

Firmwide, Pinnacle grew deposits by 10.2 percent to $28.2 billion, with growth in 19 out of 20 MSAs reported by the FDIC. This snapshot of deposit numbers as of June 30, 2021, comes from data released this month by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
