Burke & Herbert Bank Expands Presence into Loudoun County

October 13, 2021

New Ashburn Office Serves as Base of Operations for Commercial Bankers

Alexandria, VA – Burke & Herbert Bank announced today that it has opened a new office in Ashburn, Virginia to serve as the base of operations for the Bank’s commercial bankers serving businesses throughout the Loudoun County region.   The Bank’s Ashburn office is located at 20098 Ashbrook Place, Suite 185.  

The Bank’s new presence in Loudoun County represents a continuation of a commercial-banking focused market expansion plan that was launched earlier this year.   In June, the Bank opened a market headquarters facility in Fredericksburg, Virginia and in August added a branch there as well.  The locations in Fredericksburg and now Ashburn, represent the Bank’s first locations outside of northern Virginia where the Bank has operated for the past 169 years.

“We are excited about extending our presence into Loudoun County, just west of the greater northern Virginia region where the Bank has served businesses successfully for so many years,” stated Gregory Mellors, Senior Vice President and Director of Commercial Banking for the Bank.  “As the fastest growing county in the Commonwealth, we believe that Loudoun County is a great place for us to deliver our commercial banking services and lending solutions to meet the needs of the region’s businesses. And, with highly-knowledgeable, veteran commercial bankers on our team who know the local Loudoun County market, we’re well prepared to support continued business growth and success in the region.”

The Bank’s new Ashburn office will be home to Commercial Relationship Managers Marc Erazo and Brandon Whitacre.  Both Mr. Erazo and Mr. Whitacre are seasoned commercial bankers with experience serving a wide array of businesses including medical and dental practices, government contractors, not-for-profits and other professional services companies.  They also bring significant experience working with businesses throughout the Loudoun County region to their expanded roles as co-leaders of the Bank’s expansion in this market.  Mr. Erazo, who has been with Burke & Herbert Bank since 2017, is moving from the Bank’s Alexandria headquarters to the new Ashburn location.   Mr. Whitacre joined the Bank earlier this year with an initial focus on assisting in the development of a new medical/dental lending program for the Bank.  He has now started working with businesses in the Loudoun County market.

In addition to serving commercial clients out of the Ashburn facility, the Bank’s new office also will serve as a convenient location for customer meetings with a mortgage loan officer, wealth advisor, or private banking officer from the Bank.

Burke & Herbert Bank is the oldest bank in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the oldest continuously operating bank in the Washington, DC area.  The Bank offers a full range of personal and business banking products and services designed to meet customers’ banking, borrowing, and investing needs.  Burke & Herbert Bank is headquartered in Alexandria and operates more than 20 branches throughout northern Virginia and greater Fredericksburg.
