Kent Culverhouse

Roswell, GA



I am seeking an opportunity to be part of a well-respected, established practice where I can beome an integral part of the team and where my skills can be effectively utilized to the betterment of the firm. I would prefer to remain in the Atlanta, Georgia region since my own client relationships are generally in the S.E., however, I would be willing to consider relocating.

I do not expect to be able to replicate my current managerial position immediately in a new firm, but would expect the opportunity to advance in accordance to my contributions. I anticipate practicing for at least ten more years, and hope that my new firm will in fact be my last job change.

My reasons for looking for a new opportunity is because my current speciality (financial facilities) has come under extreme regulatory oversight due to the recent financial crisis and numerous bank failures, especially in Georgia. It is because of this vunderability that I am looking for a more diverse practice although I do anticipate possibily maintaining some of my banking relationships even if through a different firm.
