After 25 years of owning and operating a farm, raising cattle, corn and children, Rod joined Pinnacle Bank in 1997. Raised on a farm in Perkins County (just south of Ogallala), Rod has lived in Nebraska his whole life and has a passion for community and helping customers improve and grow their businesses.   He has had the pleasure of watching Pinnacle grow and change since the start of his career, but one thing always remained the same, the family atmosphere. Outside of the bank, Rod is the president of the Perkins County School Foundation. In 2014, the Foundation awarded over $31,000 in scholarships to students of the high school graduating class. He has been married to his wife, Robbin, for 38 years. They spend most their spare time with three grown children and seven grandchildren, but they also enjoy farming, golf and fishing.
