Pinnacle Financial Partners is One of America’s Best Places to Work

Firm ranks No. 27 on the 2019 list from FORTUNE and
Great Place to Work

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pinnacle Financial Partners is one of the top places to work in the
United States, according to the latest list of the 100 Best Companies to
Work For® from FORTUNE magazine and Great Place to
Work. The firm ranked 27 on the list, joining companies like Hilton,
Salesforce and Cisco as one of the nation’s best, most engaging

“There’s a reason why we focus so much on being one of the nation’s best
places to work,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “We
built our company to battle the bureaucratic and impersonal service that
has infected banking. That goes for the client experience as well as the
associate. Everyone deserves a great place to work and a great place to
do business. We can provide both at the same time because when people
love what they do, they’ll give clients a premier experience.”

The FORTUNE list is one of the country’s most prestigious
workplace award programs, and Pinnacle has earned a spot in each of the
three years it has been eligible. Last year the firm also won awards for
being a best workplace for women, millennials and parents. Pinnacle also
ranked No. 3 on the list of Best Places to Work in Financial Services
and Insurance.

Pinnacle’s people-focused approach to banking and management has also earned
recognition from leadership consultant Marcel Schwantes of Inc.
and is the focus
of a storytelling series
the firm launched last month.

“The very best bankers in the Southeast want to work at Pinnacle, and
that’s because we staked our fortunes on making our culture and
associate experience the very best,” Turner said. “It’s the right thing
to do and it attracts and retains top talent. This is not just an
initiative or program for us. It’s baked into our foundation, the basis
of our business model. When we built Pinnacle, we looked compassionately
at our associates and asked, ‘What would I want from my job? What would
make me excited to come to work?’ And we went from there.”
