Duane Smith

Chief Enterprise Services Officer and Chief of Staff


I serve as Chief of Staff to the President and the bank’s Operating Group and lead our Enterprise Services team. In that capacity, my team and I are responsible for managing various enterprise-wide services to include our business transformation office, marketing, corporate communications, enterprise experience, and corporate assets. We are a collection of subject matter experts that serve as internal consultants and strategist to the organization, helping build our brand and our business, while delivering a great experience for our customers and Teammates.

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, including everything from framing to plumbing and electrical. Creating something from nothing provides me with an incredible sense of accomplishment.
