Executive Vice President,
Private Client Services

Jonathan B.
We have worked with many of our clients for over a decade. We have experienced life with them. I love building those lasting relationships that result in a deep trust - a trust where clients know you have their best interests at heart, and that you are going to give them your best every day.

Mr. Rolen has been the Executive Vice President and Head of Private Client Services for Atlantic Capital Bank since October 2015, when FSG Bank merged into Atlantic Capital.

Prior to the merger, Mr. Rolen served as Executive Vice President and Director of Wealth Management for FSG Bank since January 2012. Before joining FSG, he had spent his career in Private Wealth Management for SunTrust Bank, most recently serving as Group Vice President managing personal trust teams in Chattanooga and Nashville, TN.

Mr. Rolen earned an undergraduate degree in Finance from the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business and an M.B.A. from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He is a Certified Trust Financial Advisor and is a graduate of the ABA National Graduate Trust School.

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.
