County State Watch – Monday January 15th – GA. Rep. Geoff Duncan, Candidate for Lt. Governor


Geoff Duncan (R-Cumming)

Representative Geoff Duncan was first elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2012 for the newly formed 26th District. Geoff and his wife Brooke have been married for 19 years and have three boys, Parker 15, Bayler 11 and Ryder 6. Their family resides in Forsyth County and attends Browns Bridge Community Church, which is an affiliate of North Point Community Church.

Both Geoff and his wife Brooke graduated from Chattahoochee High School in Alpharetta where they first met and both later attended Georgia Tech together. Geoff was a scholarship pitcher on the baseball team at Georgia Tech. After his junior season he was drafted by the Florida Marlins Organization and opted to leave school early to pursue his lifelong dream of being a professional baseball player. Geoff spent the next 6 seasons working his way through the minor league system and eventually reached the AAA level for parts of two seasons. An untimely shoulder injury, which resulted in surgery, cut his baseball career short in 2001.

After retiring from baseball in 2001 Geoff and his wife Brooke started a small marketing company out of their Forsyth County home with a focus on merging old-fashioned customer service with modern day technology. This unique combination afforded them the opportunity to work with several Fortune 500 companies across the country and their company quickly grew with sales reps in several states. Four years after starting the company, Geoff and Brooke sold it to a larger Georgia based marketing company and moved onto their next challenge.  Geoff currently remains active as an entrepreneur with a focus in the venture capital space.

Most recently, Geoff served as CEO of Wellview Health, a health tech startup company based in
Nashville, TN. Since being elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2012 Rep. Duncan has authored several very important pieces of legislation such as HB749-The Cargo Theft Act, HB152-Michael’s Law and most recently SB258 which is bringing over $250 million to Georgia’s rural hospitals.

Geoff is an instrument rated private pilot, has coached 23 youth sports teams and leads a couples Bible study every week with his wife Brooke.
