TENNESSEE, March 17, 2020– Starting Wednesday, March 18, all Pinnacle offices throughout our footprint will serve clients exclusively through the drive thru window. Interiors of the firm’s full-service banking offices will be closed until further notice. Appointments for urgent in-person needs can be accommodated. Many offices without a drive thru will be closed until further notice.
“Restricting our offices is an extraordinary step, but we are in an extraordinary situation,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “The health and safety of our clients and associates is our No. 1 priority. We are taking this step in an effort to protect them. This is a challenging time, and we are doing everything in our power to play our part.”

Several offices do not have drive thrus but offer a drop box. Pinnacle associates will take deposits through the drop box at these locations. Clients can find their nearest office by visiting PNFP.com/Locations.

“This is a very difficult time for us all. Still, Pinnacle’s support of our clients and associates is unwavering,” Turner said. “We’re taking steps to protect our associates that include allowing work from home wherever practical and augmenting daily cleaning services with additional disinfectant, among many others. Likewise, we are working with clients who have been impacted by illness or the economic impact of social distancing. We encourage them to reach out to let us know how we can help. They can call their local office, trusted financial advisor or our Client Service Center to let us know what they need. As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses and eventually declines, we will make additional efforts to help our clients, communities and economy recover.”
