You can't buy respect


Bill’s Volume Sales, Inc. started in a feedlot in 1963. Not too long after that, Bill Pullen started banking with Roy Dinsdale, the founder of Pinnacle Bank.

Over the decades, the two businesses have grown together. Today Bill’s Volume Sales  offers one of the largest inventories of rebuilt mixers in the world, right in Central City, Nebraska. It can service all major brands of feed mixers and has more than a million dollars of parts stored on its shelves. Meanwhile, Pinnacle Bank has 127 branches in eight states.

The keys to that success were trust and respect. And their mutual admiration and easy friendship speaks volumes about how to run a successful business.

Watch our short film about Roy and Bill’s longstanding friendship, and the important role personal banking has on the modern world.
