He began his career at a bank in Gainesville and has worked in several capacities at banks in Gainesville and surrounding counties with particular expertise in commercial lending, credit administration, treasury services and private banking.

“We are very fortunate to have Neal join our team,” said Pinnacle Bank CEO, Jackson McConnell. “As a community bank, it is of the utmost importance to have team members who can create relationships with customers and help them realize their financial dreams. Neal is an expert in this area and it is an exciting time for him to join us as we prepare to open our third branch in Gainesville and Hall County.”

He is also a member of the Board of Trustees for the Northeast Georgia Health System Foundation.
