Pinnacle Financial Partners, a bank based in Nashville, TN, grew local deposits in the Atlanta MSA by $195 million during the 12 months ended June 30, 2022, for a total of $321 million and a growth rate of 154.55 percent year-over-year.

“Pinnacle is in Atlanta for the long haul, and our friends and neighbors continue to honor us with their trust in greater and greater numbers,” said Rob Garcia, Pinnacle’s regional president in Atlanta. “This time last year, we were celebrating $97.2 million of deposit growth in a new market, and today we announce more than twice as much. Momentum is clearly on our side thanks to our dedicated associates who serve their clients with a recognizably better banking experience. Pinnacle’s journey here is only beginning. We aim to become the bank of choice for the Atlanta area.”

The Atlanta team doubled their ranks from August 2021 to August 2022, now with 69 associates in three offices across the city. Hiring successes are largely due to Pinnacle’s award-winning workplace culture, which was recently honored with a No. 1 Best Place to Work award from the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
