    Although he’s worked for four different banking systems throughout his thirty-five year career, Pinnacle Bank is where Todd believes he can make the biggest difference for his customers and his community.

    Not only is Torrington his current home, it’s also where he grew up. So it’s especially meaningful for him to give back. Like when he gets the chance to help a second or third generation farmer find a way to stay in the family business. Or working with local charities, like the St. Joseph’s Children’s home where Todd serves on the board of directors.

    Todd’s proud to be a graduate of the University of Washington’s Pacific Coast Banking School and the University of Wyoming, where he received his BS in International Agriculture. When he’s not at the bank, you’ll likely find him at the gym, working off his family’s latest culinary creation.

    Seen as more than just a banker, Minnie appreciates that her customers are comfortable chatting with her about the changes they are considering in their lives and businesses. That kind of relationship, often lasting for generations, is how she’s able to be so responsive.
