February 06, 2020

Pinnacle Financial Partners will open a new office on Medical Center Parkway in late summer 2020 to offer additional convenience to Murfreesboro clients. The new office will be led by Courtney Chavez, who is working out of the firm’s College Street location while the new office is being built. The team on Medical Center Parkway will include Chavez plus four financial specialists and a financial advisor assistant – all experienced financial professionals.

“There’s a lot of momentum in Murfreesboro, and this is a key location to round out our footprint in the area,” said Stephanie Kusch, Pinnacle’s area manager for client services in Murfreesboro. “It’s at a mid-way point between our Cason Lane and Northwest Broad Street drive-thru and surrounded by new businesses and homes. Courtney is the perfect person to lead our growth here because she is primed with the experience and expertise that our clients have come to expect. She will build a great team.”

Chavez has more than 14 years of banking experience in Rutherford County and most recently served as business banking relationship manager for Rutherford County for First Tennessee/First Horizon Bank. As a former business owner, she has a passion for advocating for and advising businesses.  

Chavez currently serves on the boards of United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Murfreesboro and The Middle Tennessee Fund for Women and Girls. Her heart for community service has twice resulted in a nomination for an Athena Young Professional Award.

The Medical Center Parkway office is Pinnacle’s sixth full-service location in Murfreesboro. It is designed to serve the full range of business and personal needs and features an ATM and two drive-thru lanes. It also includes Pinnacle’s signature feature, a Learning Center with full audio-visual capabilities. This is a space dedicated to financial education events for clients and neighbors and is also open for community use.

The office will include light blond woods, modern metal and glass fixtures and abundant natural light. It spans 4,190 square feet.
