We started with an ideal in mind, to build a bank that would better serve mid-market and emerging growth companies and their principals. Since opening our doors in 2007 we have been providing clients a superior level of service, local market expertise, and a real working relationship with an experienced banker.

We're passionate about:

  • Integrated Solutions

    "My background in family office management has taught me how closely personal and business finances are tied. At Atlantic Capital Bank, many of my private clients are owners or managers of a business, so our Private and Professional Financial Services Group takes special care to accommodate the bridging of both interests – personal and corporate."

  • Partnerships

    "My clients are entrepreneurs that work as franchisees and distributors. I enjoy partnering with each of these clients to help them leverage opportunities, overcome difficult challenges, and achieve long-term success."

  • Client Relationships

    "My clients hold a very special place in my heart, and I do everything that I can to nurture those relationships."

  • Winning

    "Winning is important to me. Whether on the field or in the boardroom, those who take calculated steps in preparation, dedicate themselves to daily learning, and persist in the face of uncertainty will win. I want my clients to WIN and will use all of my resources to help them to do so. This translates to providing insight on risks inherent with interest rates (foreign exchange), structuring options to mitigate the risks, and delivering consistent value to our financial institution depositors."

  • Fulfilling Entrepreneurial Dreams

    "Entrepreneurs have big dreams and I find it extremely satisfying to help individuals fulfill these dreams. If buying a company, owning a building, or growing a business is their goal, then I want to help make that a reality. Every business is different and Atlantic Capital Bank provides me a platform to evaluate each client based on their unique story and not just the numbers."

  • Real Estate

    "We are still operating in a very difficult economic environment. I am advising my clients to keep liquid, reduce leverage, and generate as much positive cash flow as possible so that they can take advantage of opportunities when they arise."
