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:

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."
