The Family Office at Synovus is pleased to announce the return of Walt Deriso to the team. Walt returns as the director of strategic growth and family office solutions, as well as the latest addition to its executive leadership team. As ultra-high-net-worth families and single-family offices increasingly seek specialized solutions and tailored wealth advice, Walt will lead the initiative to serve these unique families.
Prior to his return to The Family Office, Walt served as a founding shareholder at Atlantic Capital Bank in Atlanta, Georgia in 2006. At Atlantic Capital, Walt served in many roles, including private banker, commercial banker, and ultimately, as head of the family office practice, where he advised single and multi-family offices. Walt began his career at The Family Office, serving in multiple roles, including director of relationship management. His breadth of experience and expertise will be instrumental as The Family Office increasingly serves larger and more complex families and single-family offices.
“We are thrilled to welcome Walt back to The Family Office at Synovus,” said The Family Office CEO Katherine Dunlevie. “His proven track record in serving families and family offices, coupled with his deep understanding of our team’s values, will make him an invaluable asset for our colleagues and the clients we serve, as we seek to empower enterprising families to thrive.”
Walt officially returned to The Family Office in December 2022 and will be based in the Atlanta office at 3400 Overton Park. The Family Office looks forward to his leadership and contributions, as they continue to provide comprehensive and customized financial solutions to client families and single-family offices.
