2018 – Another Leap Forward for Old Dominion.
Old Dominion took another leap forward in 2018, combining continued execution of its organic growth strategy with its second successful capital raise in 18 months, raising another $38.7 million to fund the bank’s lending, investment activities, and growth in the markets it serves. In addition, the bank surpassed $250 million in assets during 2018, growing its balance sheet by more than five times in two years. Old Dominion also expanded its shareholder base with more than 320 new shareholders, largely in the Washington metro area and Pennsylvania.
To support its growing shareholder and customer base in Central Pennsylvania, the bank opened a loan production office this year in State College, PA. Throughout its footprint, the bank continues to invest in talented community bankers who are introducing Old Dominion’s true community bank to a growing number of customers.
Old Dominion’s commitment to the community remains strong and unwavering. In 2018, we have committed our resources and time to special organizations that provide important services to children throughout our the markets we serve, including the Medical Care for Children Partnership Foundation in Fairfax County and the Jefferson Area Children's Health Improvement Program (CHiP). In addition, each of our branches and offices have collected toys for children’s hospitals in Virginia and Central Pennsylvania. We look forward to continuing supporting these and other local nonprofits throughout this year and in the future.
2017 – Executing Old Dominion’s Organic Growth Strategy.
With a balance sheet newly fortified with $30 million in capital from 175 shareholders across the Washington metro area and Pennsylvania, Old Dominion National Bank successfully executed its organic growth strategy throughout 2017.
Old Dominion expanded its assets, loans, deposits, client relationships, branch network and talented team through the year. At the same time, the bank supported many important community organizations through volunteerism and financial contributions, such as the Albemarle County Police Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and Junior Achievement, to name a few.
Old Dominion’s first full-service branch in Northern Virginia opened in Tysons Corner in 2017, where the company’s executive offices are located.
Old Dominion also introduced its concierge style approach to banking to a growing number of new customers, as the bank seeks to become a bank of choice for high-quality small and mid-sized businesses, nonprofits and individuals in the markets it serves.
