“We are so pleased that Mr. O’Hare has agreed to join the bank and run our Capital Finance Group. Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team of professional bankers. The bank is looking forward to providing an asset-based lending option to our current clients and potential new clients. The group will focus on small to medium sized business with revenues up to $50 million,” said Jeffrey D. Payne, Pinnacle president and CEO.

O’Hare brings more than 40 years of lending and factoring experience to Pinnacle Bank. During that time, he has been a part of several banking institutions as well as independent finance businesses.

It is especially exciting to continue my career of providing growth and working capital financing to deserving companies and to do so as part of Pinnacle Bank,” said O’Hare.
