Breckenridge, CO, March 16, 2018 --( The Pinnacle Companies is proud to announce their recognition as the 2017 Kaiser Permanente – Summit Chamber of Commerce Best Place to Work, awarded on Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

Upon announcing The Pinnacle Companies as winner, Paul Chodkowski, CEO of St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, quoted Pinnacle’s internally-famous mantra, coined by company Founder and President, Chris Renner, “We’re not a company doing business together. We’re a family doing life together.”

Accepting the award on behalf of Renner and the organization, Andrea Kavouklis, Director of Marketing, said, "We are so honored to be chosen for this award in such a competitive category and amongst 14 knowingly-great places to work such as Arapahoe Basin and the Summit Community Care Clinic. I’ve worked with and for companies of all shapes and sizes, in all different places. They all strived to be what The Pinnacle Companies actually is."

Kavouklis continued, "We are passionate about this community and connecting our clients and guests abroad to this place we get to live in every day. Our employees genuinely love working together to serve those customers and that joy shines through in their work. We are 100% employee-owned through over 75% of our employees and that speaks volumes to the pride employees have in this company, our work and mission.”

The Pinnacle Companies is the parent company of Pinnacle Mountain Homes, Pinnacle Lodging, Pinnacle Design Studio, VisitBreck and Mountain Vacations. With over 65 employees, they continue to expand their offerings and staff. Additionally, they recently launched Pinnacle Gives to support the local community and are building a new office in Frisco’s Basecamp complex, set to complete Fall 2018.

“Culture is very important to us. We continue to grow but the same culture, heart and employee-first mentality remains at our core. I sometimes believe Chris [Renner] continues to expand and add new businesses just to enable more and more deserving, passionate people to live and find fulfilling work in Summit County, Colorado,” said Kavouklis.

Kavouklis concluded, "Thanks again to the Summit Chamber for selecting us and to this community of great businesses and great people. We are grateful and humbled to be a part of it."
