Pinnacle Earns National and Regional Greenwich Excellence Awards
Financial services research firm Greenwich Associates named Pinnacle Financial Partners a 2010 Greenwich Excellence Award winner for distinguished service in small business and middle market banking.
“We are honored to be among a small number of banks recognized for the highest levels of client satisfaction," said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “The Greenwich Excellence Awards show that we are succeeding in our commitment to delivering distinctive service and effective advice to small- and mid-sized businesses and their owners in Middle Tennessee and Knoxville.”
Pinnacle was among only 15 financial services firms recognized nationally for overall satisfaction in small business banking and one of 12 to receive the award in the South region. Greenwich based the selection on more than 14,000 interviews with businesses with sales of $1-10 million across the country.
In the middle market banking category, Pinnacle was one of 10 banks recognized nationally and one of four that received awards in the South region. Greenwich based the middle market awards on more than 10,000 interviews with businesses with sales of $10-500 million across the country.
Greenwich Associates conducted interviews throughout 2010 to determine the award winners. The banks selected had a significantly different percentage of top-box “excellent” ratings than the mean for all 750 eligible banks.
