Meet the Team

Business Banking Officers

At Burke & Herbert Bank, you don’t have to be the CEO of a multinational corporation to receive personal service. We feel that size doesn’t matter, which is why we provide businesses of all sizes with the same level of attention and professional courtesy. So whether you’re calling us from your dining room table/office desk for a business line of credit extension, or you’re checking an account balance from your high-rise corner office, you can be assured that one of our Business Banking Officers will treat you like the CEO you are. Of course, when your business does reach international status, we’ll be there for you, too.
