Pinnacle has acquired Houston-based Trinity Bridge, LLC, a consulting company specializing in risk-based inspection programs for the refining and petrochemical industries. This comes on the heels of Pinnacle’s announced rebrand and reinvestment into technology and systems to create next generation reliability solutions for the industry.

“Reliability will be the key to sustainability for industries like oil and gas refining, chemicals, mining, and water treatment, and Trinity Bridge brings a great team of people to accelerate that advancement,” says Ryan Sitton, founder and CEO, Pinnacle and author of “Crucial Decisions.” “Lynne Kaley and I have worked alongside each other as competitors and collaborators for nearly twenty years, and I have always respected and admired her. She was a pioneer in the early days of risk-based inspection technology development, and we are excited to have her and her team join us in building next generation of solutions to optimize reliability.” 

Lynne Kaley, principal owner of Trinity Bridge, will be joining Pinnacle as vice president of research and development. In this role, she will lead Pinnacle’s investment into the development of new technology, processes, and solutions to advance industrial reliability.
