Atlantic Capital Bank salutes our Veterans and their families.
Several ACB employees and clients are currently active military, veterans or support loved ones in harm’s way. They understand the true meaning of Veteran’s Day, and we are honored to recognize them for their sacrifice and service.
Dennis Wagner, Atlantic Capital’s Vice President of SBA Banking, lives in Richmond, Virginia and serves our Veterans on a daily basis. He grew up in a military family and married into one as well. Dennis understands the heart, soul and “can-do” spirit ingrained into our service men and women.
Dennis appreciates the unique opportunities available to our Veterans as they transition into civilian life and how Atlantic Capital can assist. “Moving from one career to another is always challenging, but with the right attitude and mindset, anything is possible,” says Dennis. He credits his mother and father for instilling three important values and characteristics that help him serve his customers:
– Set a goal and do what it takes to achieve it;
– Have a hard-work mentality;
– Never give up; push hard, be persistent.
With his SBA expertise, Dennis enjoys working with veterans seeking to move into the private sector. He recognizes that veterans are disciplined, have an entrepreneurial spirit, know how to work as a team and maintain that “never give up” mentality.
According to Dennis, “When in the underwriting phase, I see their military background as a strength. It shows they have the dedication that you cannot measure on a profit and loss statement. They have an intangible force behind them.”
Recently, Rodney Williams, President of D & R Williams, LLC wanted to expand on his business. He called his local SBA office and they referred him to Dennis. Dennis was able to walk him through the entire process and close the loan within 30 days. “I contacted Mr. Wagner with a time-sensitive need and knew immediately that I had contacted the right person. Mr. Wagner knew exactly what needed to be done to make it a reality. I am grateful for his expertise and leadership. With his help, I was able to receive my loan in no time. I would recommend Mr. Wagner and Atlantic Capital Bank without hesitation,” said Rodney.
