Jeffrey Johnson has joined Pinnacle Bank’s Capital Finance Group as executive vice president.

“It’s with great pleasure to announce that we have added Jeffrey Johnson to our newly formed ABL Capital Finance Group. Jeffrey brings over 28 years of strong credit and sales skills to our team and we look forward to him helping Kevin O’Hare and the Capital Finance Group continue to grow our asset-based lending division,” said Jeffrey D. Payne, president and chief executive officer.

Johnson began his asset-based lending career in 1991 with BFI Business Finance where he became executive vice president. He grew loan commitments to $150 million and expanded BFI’s geographical footprint to 13 western states. Prior to joining Pinnacle Bank, Johnson worked for Tech Capital as senior vice president and division manager where he established the first asset-based lending business in a NCUA regulated Credit Union and grew the business from zero to $25 million in loan commitments.
