FVCbank’s accelerated growth leads to expansion of leadership team
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA – FVCbank announced the addition of community bank veteran, Jennifer L. Deacon, as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Deacon, who will work out of FVCbank’s corporate headquarters in Fairfax, joins the executive team as the Bank continues to grow, approaching $1 billion in total assets.
Deacon brings over 20 years of community banking experience to FVCbank with a focus on accounting and finance. She most recently served as executive vice president, chief accounting officer and corporate secretary with Cardinal Bank. Deacon helped form Cardinal Bank in 1998 and grew the bank to over $4.2 billion in total assets. Prior to Cardinal Bank, Deacon worked in the accounting departments at George Mason Bank and Patriot National Bank.
“I am excited to become a part of the tenured executive team at FVCbank,” Deacon said. “I look forward to partnering with the team to participate in the Bank’s continued growth model providing increased value to its customers and shareholders.”
Deacon follows former executive vice president and CFO Patricia A. Ferrick, who was promoted recently to president of FVCbank.
“Jennifer’s extensive experience in community banking will serve FVCbank well as we continue our outstanding growth in the region,” said David W. Pijor, chairman and CEO of FVCbank. “As we’ve grown, we’ve selected wisely from known leaders in our community to oversee our success to build the best team of bankers for our customers and the shareholders we serve.”
Deacon is the latest executive picked up by FVCbank from Cardinal Bank. In June, Steven M. Wiltse, CPA, a former board member with Cardinal Financial Corp., was named to FVCbank’s board of directors and Thomas W. Grantham, also a Cardinal executive, was named as senior vice president of the Bank’s commercial lending team in Arlington, Virginia.
Deacon holds a master’s degree in business administration and Bachelor of Science in accounting from George Mason University. She is a certified public accountant and a graduate of the Virginia Bankers Association School of Bank Management and the VBA Executive Leadership Institute. As a member of the Kiwanis Club of Fairfax, Deacon has served on the organization’s board of directors for over 10 years. She has also served as president and treasurer during her tenure.
Celebrating 10 years of sound financial performance and continued growth, FVCbank was formed in November 2007 to serve the banking needs of commercial businesses, nonprofit organizations, professional service entities, their owners and employees located in the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan and Northern Virginia area.
