Pinnacle Financial Partners has added veteran banking professional Mark Jannetty to its growing equipment finance team. Jannetty is a financial advisor bringing more than 20 years of equipment finance experience to Pinnacle. He will be based at the firm’s headquarters in downtown Nashville, TN.

“Pinnacle is dedicated to putting people first,” said Kris Foster, Pinnacle’s president of equipment finance. “The addition of Mark shows how we continue to attract experienced professionals with the wisdom of many years in the industry and the autonomy to work in the clients’ best interest. Mark is a proven producer and has earned a reputation for partnership and professionalism that will serve Pinnacle clients well.”

Jannetty will partner with local financial advisors across Tennessee and the surrounding areas to help commercial and small business clients lease or finance major equipment to grow their companies. That culture of teamwork and collaboration is one of hallmarks of Pinnacle’s work environment and one of many reasons it is  ranked as one of the best places to work in the nation and in almost every market the firm serves.

“Pinnacle’s culture is distinctly different from others in the industry,” said Jannetty.  “This cultural distinction is apparent in how we support our clients and communities across the southeast.  Partnership is a value here, and it means we all work together on opportunities that serve the best interests of those clients and communities.”

Jannetty joins Pinnacle from Regions Equipment Finance Corporation, where he served as the senior vice president and east team leader. He previously worked at Wells Fargo Equipment Finance, Inc. as territory manager and at GE Capital Equipment Financing Solutions as vice president and senior account manager.

Jannetty earned his bachelor’s degree in political science with a minor in economics from the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL.
