Duane Smith

Chief of Staff and Enterprise Operations


I serve as Chief of Staff to the President and the bank’s Operating Group, as well as lead our Enterprise Operations.  In that capacity, my team and I are responsible for managing Atlantic Union Bank's brand and reputation through marketing, corporate communications, the customer experience and our physical presence for Teammates and customers. We enable each of the business units we serve by creating a methodical and well-managed system in which all can operate effectively and best serve our customers.

I joined Atlantic Union Bank in November 2016 after three years as the Head of Brand Marketing at Vonage preceded by 16 years in various leadership roles at Capital One. I have a B.S. in Mass Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University as well as executive education from Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management and University of Virginia Darden School of Business.

Outside of work, I have three passions in life. First is spending time with my family who make me smile every day. Second is playing volleyball, where over the past 30 years I’ve mastered jumping lower and moving slower. And, finally, I love home improvement – from construction, plumbing to electrical. Creating something from nothing provides me with an incredible sense of accomplishment.
