Welcome to Pinnacle Bank, where you experience banking the way it should be.
Here we still believe in personal banking relationships. Over the last century, we’ve grown from a small, rural, community bank into a strong and modern regional organization with over $7.6 billion in assets. But unlike many banks today, we still regard old-fashioned, neighborly customs—like greeting you by name and being involved in community events—as meaningful and important. We treat our customers like neighbors, and they reward us with great loyalty.
This makes us a little different, but we think it’s good business. We hope you agree.
Our bank traces its history back many years. First State Bank Texas opened its doors in 1970, in Keene, Texas, and grew steadily, becoming the Keene Bancorp. About four decades earlier—in Palmer, Nebraska—another bank was started by a local cattle rancher and farmer named George Dinsdale. This bank grew steadily in Nebraska’s rural communities, becoming Pinnacle Bancorp.
In 2002, the two organizations found they had a lot in common and merged into Pinnacle Bancorp, keeping their local bank names. In 2008, to reflect the six-year association with the Pinnacle family of banks, First State Bank Texas became Pinnacle Bank. We now serve Texas communities in Keene, Cleburne, Burleson, Joshua, Azle, Springtown, Benbrook and Fort Worth. Peter G. Bennis has been our president since 1989.
Today, this merging of community banks into one strong organization gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy large-bank resources along with small-bank, family-run values. Sid Dinsdale, the founder’s grandson, serves as president of Pinnacle Bancorp, which serves commercial, consumer and agricultural interests in over 130 locations across Nebraska, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri, Iowa and Kansas. Keeping with our vision, each local bank acts with significant autonomy to best serve its customers and community.
With our local roots and our neighborly style of banking, we’re proud to say we do banking "The Texas Way."
We hope you enjoy the difference a family-run bank can make in your life and community.
