We're passionate about:

  • 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."

  • Client Advocacy

    "The personal relationships that grow out of this business are most important to me. I’m here to be an advocate for my clients."

  • Improved Efficiency

    "The best part about my job is being able to help clients on a very practical level. I start by taking the time to look at each client's day-to-day processes from their desk. As I learn more about the way they work, I'm often able to suggest solutions that help save the client time and money. If I can help my client to improve his/her efficiency, that's a big success in my book!"

  • Convenience and Efficiency

    "One of the things that we've always tried to do is to focus on combining personal service with the latest technology to create convenience and efficiency for our clients - both in corporate banking and private banking."

  • All-Around Success

    "Every day as I arrive to work, my goal is the same: to do what I can to help my clients and my co-workers. And I think that's the attitude of all of us at Atlantic Capital. Our mindset is not, "Let's put a deal on the books." Instead, we ask ourselves, "What can we do today to best serve our clients?" and, "How can we craft the best solutions in order to keep the clients' best interest at heart and build a long-term relationship based on trust?""

  • Personalized Solutions

    "When it comes to financing, my clients have very specific concerns and needs. They don't need an off-the-shelf solution - they need someone to sit down and listen to them, and structure something that works with the way their business operates. I do that for each of my clients."

  • Execution

    "Having significant experience on the equity side of Commercial Real Estate development and investment, we bring a better understanding of our clients' issues and are in a better position to provide creative alternatives than our competition. This, combined with our ability to execute quickly, has allowed us to play a lead role among a select client base."

  • Customized Solutions

    "For me, the best part about ACB is the strong focus on meeting the customer where they are and designing a solution that meets their specific needs. Having spent several years as the business manager for a local business, I know how companies appreciate having a customer focused banking partner. At ACB, we are able to design an efficient treasury system that adds value, but works in the background, enabling the customer to focus on their core business."

  • Creative Ideas

    "I enjoy working with companies and executives that want creative and sound ideas. I target clients that are interested in deposit and cash management solutions that form the foundation of their business or industry. If our team cannot offer the service or product necessary, it is our mission to make connections to outside vendors and individuals that can provide assistance. Building relationships and trust within our niche market segments is how we define success. "

  • Custom Solutions

    "I have spent my entire career working to help businesses achieve their goals. Every business is unique and has its own needs, and I enjoy the challenge of bringing custom solutions to each client."

  • Your Future

    "I understand that our clients' businesses are the foundations of their personal plans for the future. What we help them accomplish has much more importance than just numbers on a piece of paper. Co-workers, families, and communities all have a lot riding on the success of these businesses, and their banking relationship is an important element in enabling them to achieve that success. "

  • 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."

  • Reliability

    "Our Payments Industry clients require a banking partner that is reliable, scalable and available to support their unique operational needs. I take great pride in delivering thoughtful solutions and ongoing service to help our clients meet their growth initiatives."

  • Learning

    "In small business banking, every day brings new challenges and solutions. I enjoy learning about companies, their industry, how they make money, and how I can help them."

  • Client Relationships

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

  • Adding Value

    "I believe in forming long-term relationships based on trust and respect with my clients. Adding value to the client while offering great service is my #1 goal."

  • 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."

  • Financing Solutions

    "I enjoy structuring financing solutions that address our clients' strategic growth and operating needs."

  • Relationships

    "Having the opportunity to work with business owners and corporate executives keeps my job interesting. However, my favorite part is getting to know the client and their family. With my strong belief in excellent customer service, attention to the details and a sincere desire to know and understand each of my clients, I’m most rewarded when I become a member of the client’s advisor team."

  • Exceeding Expectations

    "My philosophy when working with clients? Deliver what you promise and always exceed their expectations."

  • Integrated Solutions

    "Mr. Deriso is the Chairman of Atlantic Capital Bank and Atlantic Capital Bancshares, Inc. He is a retired Vice Chairman of Synovus Financial Corporation in Columbus, Georgia. Mr. Deriso began his business career as a practicing attorney in Albany, Georgia in 1972."

  • Mutual Understanding

    "The key to a successful banking relationship is taking the time to not only thoroughly understand a borrower's business and the entrepreneur's goals, but also for a business owner to understand the Bank and how decisions are made. I think business owners are looking for an advocate within the Bank and banker continuity. This forges a long-term relationship and that is what I enjoy."

  • 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."

  • Maximizing Opportunities

    "The key to being an asset to any client is to give them fresh eyes on each opportunity, and to maximize their profitability with minimal interruption to their operating structure. Every opportunity that arises for my client deserves my full attention, and above all, I will never provide a product or service that does not make them better as a result."

  • 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."

  • Creative Solutions

    "The satisfaction I get working on a deal, from Term Sheet to Closing, is immeasurable. I enjoy working with key executives to better understand their financing needs, and developing a creative, custom-tailored solution which not only achieves their goals, but also provides adequate operating flexibility from a cash flow perspective."

  • Entrepreneurs

    "Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Whether providing financing for a business acquisition, a business expansion, or a business start-up, my passion is helping to make the dream of business ownership a reality for my clients."

  • Creating an Exceptional Experience

    "Personalized, high-level service is hard to expect in today's financial industry. I aim to approach banking from a client-focused perspective and strive to provide that high level of service to our clients, addressing their needs head on and leaving them knowing we worked together to create the best possible solution."

  • Exceeding Expectations

    "Success stems from hard work, good ethics and great relationships. I strive to keep each of these core elements at the forefront of my business with each client."

  • Relationships

    "I believe customer service is the most important thing to a Community financial institution and the single most important product they sell to their customers. The relationship a community bank has with its customers and the service they provide is what differentiates themselves from the competition. At Atlantic Capital we feel the same way about our financial institution clients. Our primary goal is to deliver superior customer service and products that exceed expectations. "
