Pinnacle Financial Partners appointed Mickey M. Renner regional president for the entire South Carolina coast, including Myrtle Beach, Charleston and Hilton Head.

Renner has 27 years of experience in financial services and spent his entire career at Wachovia, now Wells Fargo. Since 2009, he has been the Wells’ South Carolina business banking executive with responsibility for Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and Florence.

“Mickey’s accomplishments in South Carolina banking are second to none,” said Rick Callicutt, Pinnacle’s chairman for the Carolinas and Virginia. “He was a top tier producer in loans, deposits and fee business at Wells, and he did it all while leading a team of nearly 80 people. His track record of servant leadership and service to clients are a perfect fit for Pinnacle.”

“Pinnacle is exactly where I need to be,” Renner said. “It takes me back to a more customer-focused way of doing business. Work with your clients and do right by them. That’s what this company is all about. Rick and Terry Turner are genuine people who live and work by a set of beliefs that are right in line with my own: Engage your team, serve your clients and do your best every day to make both of them happy.”

Before taking over the South Carolina team for Wells Fargo, Renneer served Wachovia as a business banker, business banking director, small business manager and retail sales manager in various markets in North Carolina.
