Greenwich Associates honors firm for ease of doing business and trust

December 20, 2016

Financial services research firm Greenwich Associates named Pinnacle Financial Partners a 2016 Greenwich Best Brand Award winner for small business banking based on trust and ease of doing business.

Greenwich Associates evaluated more than 750 banks by conducting over 12,000 interviews with businesses across the country with sales of $1 million to $10 million. Only 18 were found to have a distinctive brand.

The awards for Best Brand – Ease of Doing Business and Best Brand – Trust, which signifies the confidence clients have in their bank, are based on customer “excellent” ratings.

“There is nothing more important in a banking relationship than trust,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “Small business owners value the honesty and integrity of our advisors, who make it as easy as possible to manage their finances.”

Pinnacle Financial Partners provides a full range of banking, investment, trust, mortgage and insurance products and services designed for businesses and their owners and individuals interested in a comprehensive relationship with their financial institution. The American Banker recognized Pinnacle as the sixth best bank to work for in the country in 2016.

The firm began operations in a single downtown Nashville location in October 2000 and has since grown to approximately $11.0 billion in assets at Sept. 30, 2016. As the second-largest bank holding company headquartered in Tennessee, Pinnacle operates in the state’s four largest markets, Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga, as well as several surrounding counties.
