FVCbank marks its 10th anniversary with a celebration
More than 150 people attended FVCbank’s 10th anniversary celebration Thursday at the Waterford at Fair Oaks in Fairfax, Virginia.
Since opening its doors in November 2007, FVCbank has built a reputation of a community bank with a vision of helping people achieve their dreams. In the past 10 years, the Bank has grown to six branches and $1 billion in total assets.
“We were delighted so many people could join us to celebrate this significant milestone in our Bank’s history,” said David Pijor, chairman and CEO of FVCbank since the Bank’s inception. “We opened at a tumultuous time during the global financial crisis and provided stability and capital when businesses in our community needed those two things to succeed. Over the past decade, we’ve put the right people in place with tailored products and services to continue to meet the needs of our customers.”
After sharing stories of the history of the Bank, Pijor praised FVCbank’s team for providing the talent and experience that helped the Bank grow and achieve its goals while serving the community well.
“Our people represent the greatest asset we hold,” Pijor said.
Of the Bank’s initial team, six continue to work at FVCbank. Many of the founding shareholders remain invested in the Bank and many of the first customers continue to bank with FVCbank. Several of the first employees, founding shareholders and initial customers attended the anniversary celebration Thursday to celebrate the milestone.
“We focus on the people and our relationships,” said Patricia Ferrick, president of FVCbank and one of the first employees. “We are so fortunate to have this group of employees, shareholders and customers. With our employees dedicated to exceeding the needs of our customers, our loyal customers stay with us and our investors know we are committed to enhancing shareholder value. We built the right team of people and everything else follows.”
