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:

  • 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."

  • 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?""

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."
