Darlene Brown serves as the Branch Manager of the Commerce Office, bringing with her over 41 years of banking experience.
Hailing from Hartwell, Georgia, Darlene started her banking career as a teller and worked her way through various positions, including new accounts and loan processor. In 1992, she was promoted to Branch Manager and Lender, where she continued to learn more about the financial needs of those in her community. In 2008, she became part of the Pinnacle Bank family and now serves as the Branch Manager and Loan Processor for the Commerce Office.
Darlene believes working in a small branch has allowed her to develop expertise in many areas. Whether on the teller line or processing loans, she hones her skills and continues to learn more about Pinnacle customer needs daily. Her many years of experience give her the necessary edge to answer employee and customer questions and help them resolve any financial issues quickly.
When she’s not working at the bank, Darlene enjoys spending time with her family, most notably, her three beautiful grandchildren. She also loves playing the piano and does so for her church.
We’re glad to have Darlene as part of the Pinnacle team and look forward to great things happening in the future.
