As we say goodbye to 2014, we want to take a look back at some of Pinnacle’s top moments of 2014.
1. 20th Birthday
Pinnacle Promotions celebrated our 20th birthday in July. We hosted a company celebration replete with songs, and food, and fun.
2. Pinnacle’s Big Office Move
After 10 years in our previous location, we moved to a new, spectacular office space in February. We had to work around some pretty major weather delays, but eventually we arrived at our new digs with our pink crates and worked quickly to get settled in!
3. Holiday Gift Giving
Pinnacle Promotions Do Good Feel Good committee chose a foster family to adopt for the holidays. Our team shopped for Barbies and pjs and makeup for two sisters taken in with nothing but the clothes on their back just before the holidays. How fun it was to make a difference in the lives of these young ladies. Pinnacle team members donated more than $500 in gifts and gift cards for this family and these girls.
4. Pinnacle Promotions named #58 on ASI Counselor Magazine’s Best Places to Work 2014
For the fifth year, Pinnacle Promotions is named to ASI Counselor Magazine’s Best Places to Work. The family culture, continuing education training and career pathways, and flexible work schedules all contributed to the recognition in 2014.
5. Pinnacle’s New Brand
January 3rd, 2014, Pinnacle introduced our new brand to the world in a huge unveiling!
6. Atlanta Idea Expo ’14
Pinnacle hosted our first-ever Atlanta Idea Expo ’14. The event happened on September 17th, and was the first of its kind for Pinnacle. We invited area clients, and some clients from farther away, to spend the day at our new offices with vendors, free samples and a delicious lunch.
7. Pinnacle’s New Website
In May, to match our new branding, Pinnacle launched our totally re-vamped website.
8. PPAI Award Notification
PPAI, the national non-profit association for the promotional products industry, selected Pinnacle Promotions as a finalist for four awards: Image Awards – Branding, Image Award – Distributor Catalog, Image Award Technology Award – Ecommerce website, Technology Award – Social Media, Technology Award.
9. Trustpilot honors Pinnacle Promotions
Trustpilot is an online-review platform for ecommerce businesses. Trustpilot boasts more than 7.5 million reviews on its site, representing businesses in more than 16 countries.

10. Counselor Best Place to Work Road Tour
Counselor Magazine’s Andy Cohen, Mindy Jensen Ligos and C.J. Mittica stopped by Pinnacle Promotions to check out the new offices during the Counselor Magazine Best Places to Work Road Trip.
11. World Cup Watching
Like many workplaces around the world, Pinnacle gathered in our new, large breakroom several afternoons in July to cheer the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team on through their journey at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. #USA #USA #USA
12. Emory Winship
Each year, our team members join Emory University (we are alumni, they are a client) for their annual fundraising 5K race.
13. Inc. 5000
Pinnacle makes the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing companies in 2014.
The snow and ice storm that hit Atlanta in January and February not only shut down most of Georgia, but also slowed our office move. On the bright side, this past year we initiated an “always on” connection plan so that our offices are never really closed, moving forward.
We can’t wait to see what 2015 brings to Pinnacle Promotions, and to all of you!
