The Power Of A Banking Relationship
Banking is about relationships. At Atlantic Capital Bank, we treat each business owner as unique. We get to know the unique nature of their business so we can offer an equally unique solution. Atlanta’s Dr. Peter Lee, MD experienced the power of a banking relationship when he turned to Dirk Ledford to keep his business moving in the right direction.
Dirk is Dr. Lee’s private client services banker. Dirk and his team offer Dr. Lee quick responses and customized solutions. “I can count on Dirk to respond and find answers promptly,” Dr. Lee said.
Dr. Lee knows he has a trusted lifeline with Atlantic Capital. His relationship with Dirk extends beyond his business into his personal finances as well. As a result, Dirk and his team have a full-picture of Dr. Lee’s finances to tailor solutions just for him when obstacles arise.
For example, Dr. Lee recently needed to add a surgeon to his staff to keep up with his growing medical practice. However, he needed funds in advance to cover the cost of this new employee. If he hadn’t been able to hire a second surgeon, Dr. Lee feared it would paralyze the growth of his business.
Dr. Lee called Dirk. The Atlantic Capital team immediately began looking for a unique solution. Dirk arrived at an innovative method to get Dr. Lee the money he needed: a home equity line of credit. Even better, he lowered the interest rate in order to keep his monthly payments exactly the same amount.
“Dirk figured out how to give me a great rate so I could move forward to extend access to healthcare to more people,” Dr. Lee explained. “He used some capital from my house, which gave me the money I needed to expand and grow my medical business while funding my nonprofit, the Pan Asian Healthcare Foundation.”
Soon after, Dr. Lee realized his growing practice also needed additional equipment. Through Dirk’s creative work, Dr. Lee qualified for a business loan with equipment financing. The equipment loan gave Dr. Lee the opportunity to meet business demand and expand.
Dr. Lee is growing his medical practice with more than profits in mind. He wants to install a fully equipped clinic in every Georgia county. It takes a team to accomplish this worthwhile goal, and there is still more to do. “We’re still working toward this pursuit, and Dirk and Atlantic Capital have been great partners in helping to reach my dream,” Dr. Lee said.
Dirk is available 24/7 for Dr. Lee. He cultivates a holistic banking relationship so he can give Dr. Lee the best results possible, and the results show: Dr. Lee’s practice and nonprofit are growing.
