Gil was born into agriculture and growing up on a ranch in the southeast corner of Colorado helped shape his future. He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Ag Business and began his career in ag and commercial lending in 1993. He would later attend and graduate from the Graduate School of Banking in Boulder, Colorado.
Gil joined the Pinnacle Bank family in 1997 in Sterling, Colorado, and would make his way to Wyoming in 2000, working for our Torrington branch. In 2006 he accepted the Market President position at our Worland location, where he spent 17 years dedicated to helping local business owners, farmers, and ranchers attain their dreams. In 2022 Gil relocated to Cody, taking over the helm as Regional President, where he oversees our Cody, Powell, Thermopolis and Worland branches.
Gil’s unwavering commitment to community involvement has been a constant throughout his tenure with Pinnacle Bank. He continues to actively fill volunteer opportunities with local non-profit organizations and is a constant contributor to and supporter of the local schools.
He and his wife, Sarah, have three children and are grateful to be a part of the close-knit, “gateway to Yellowstone,” community.
