Pinnacle grew local deposits in Memphis to $2.2 billion and is now the third largest bank in the MSA by deposits. According to data from the FDIC, the firm added $541.7 million in deposits in the 12 months ended June 30, 2022, for a growth rate of 31.88 percent. That was enough to move Pinnacle from No. 5 in the FDIC ranking to No. 3 with 5.36 percent market share. The Memphis MSA overall added $958.1 million in available deposits, with Pinnacle’s growth representing 56 percent of that number.

“The numbers from the FDIC show clearly that Pinnacle is becoming the bank of choice in Memphis,” said Phillip May, Pinnacle’s Memphis president. “Our associates have worked incredibly hard to win the trust of our clients by offering a banking experience they can’t get anywhere else. Clients know that when they speak with Pinnacle, they’re dealing with local financial professionals who are empowered to collaborate and make decisions right here in our community. That’s a key differentiator at a time when more banks are consolidating and leaving their local customers behind. I’m proud of our team and thankful to our clients who honor us with their business.”

Team Pinnacle in Memphis was 222 strong at the end of August 2022, with 20 new associates coming on board since one year prior. Strong recruiting success is due largely to the firm’s award-winning culture and work environment.
