A former professional baseball player and successful entrepreneur, Geoff Duncan has served as Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor since his inauguration in January of 2019. Geoff graduated from Chattahoochee High School in Alpharetta where he met his wife, Brooke. Geoff and Brooke both attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where Geoff was a scholarship pitcher.
After a successful career at Georgia Tech, Geoff was drafted by the Florida Marlins’ organization. Geoff spent six seasons playing baseball in the minor leagues, advancing as high as AAA before a shoulder injury forced his retirement in the early 2000s. After retiring from baseball, Geoff and his wife Brooke started a small marketing firm in their living room. The company experienced tremendous success which allowed Geoff and Brooke to sell the business and move on to multiple other entrepreneurial ventures.
Geoff most recently served as the CEO of a health technology startup. Geoff’s faith inspired him to a life of leadership and prompted his upstart run for political office. Before running for Lieutenant Governor, Geoff served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2012 to 2017. As a state representative, he authored several important pieces of legislation. These include HB 749-The Cargo Theft Act, HB 152- Michael’s Law and most recently SB 258- the Rural Hospital Tax Credit.
In his first legislative session as the President of the Senate, the Georgia General Assembly passed landmark health care reform measures, ensured that computer science courses will be offered in every middle and high school across the state, and offered legislation to term limit the Office of Lt. Governor to two consecutive four year terms.
Geoff and Brooke are married and have three sons: Parker, Bayler, and Ryder. Geoff has coached 20+ youth sports teams and led a weekly bible study with his wife Brooke. The Duncans attend Browns Bridge Community Church, an affiliate of North Point Community Church.
