Member Profile

Most kids put up a fuss when their parents first say they will need to earn their own spending money, but Cory Burdette, SVP-Financial Institutions Group of Atlantic Capital Bank, Atlanta, thanks his parents for instilling the concept of financial independence in him at an early age. Of his first summer job bagging groceries at Kroger, Burdette said, "I learned the real value of a dollar, a sense of pride in working and doing a good job, customer service, how to engage in conversation and good people skills." The Group 5 representative on the Leadership GBA Executive Committee, Burdette didn’t have aspirations to be a career banker until he was selected for BB&T’s management training program, which opened his eyes to all aspects of the industry. "Being at a bank that works with other banks, I know and understand their business, what they need and the impact they have in the communities they serve," he said. He discusses his career journey, experiences with GBA, passions for the outdoors and fitness, parenting his three sons and more in his GBA Member Profile.
