Pinnacle Moves Up to No. 6 Spot in Knoxville, Retains No. 4 Market Share in Nashville
Pinnacle Financial Partners Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) is the sixth-largest out of 44 financial institutions in the Knoxville metropolitan statistical area (MSA), according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
The FDIC’s summary of deposits for June 30, 2010, through June 30, 2011, shows that Pinnacle remains the fourth-largest out of 60 financial institutions in Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro MSA with a market share of 9.0 percent.
“Being in the top six in both of our markets shows that clients are eager for the personalized service and expertise that Pinnacle’s associates offer,” said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle president and CEO. “We expect that dissatisfaction with regional banks’ new debit card fees will help us take additional market share from competitors in the coming year.”
In the Knoxville MSA, Pinnacle grew its deposits by approximately $64.3 million over the prior year, giving the firm 2.75 percent market share, up from 2.47 percent in 2010. Pinnacle moved up one spot from No. 7 in 2010.
"This is the fourth consecutive time we have risen in the ranks since our de novo expansion in 2007, and we will continue to employ the strategies that have helped us gain market share year over year,” said Nathan Hunter, Pinnacle Knoxville president.
In Middle Tennessee, Pinnacle maintained the top spot in Rutherford County with 24.07 percent market share and remains the second-largest financial institution in Wilson County with 15.56 percent market share.
