Roegge plans for Atlantic Capital to become one of the leading SBA lenders across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions through recruitment and innovation--specifically, processing loans more quickly and committing capital for business leaders.
“My career has been devoted to helping small businesses gain access to capital for growth by being a true cash flow lender,” Roegge said. “I’m excited to expand the reach of Atlantic Capital across the southeast and its efforts to help small businesses bank in the right direction. I was drawn to Atlantic Capital by their strong track record of innovation and expertise in business lending.”
