Access National Corporation announced June 2 the appointment of Mark Moore as President of its primary subsidiary, Access National Bank, effective June 23, 2016.
“I am thrilled to have forged a management partnership with such a highly respected competitor and former colleague uniquely qualified to lead our bank and expand its presence in the marketplace,” CEO Michael Clarke said. “As a 30-year veteran of the local commercial and investment banking landscape, Mark has deep experience and expertise in delivering on-target banking services to emerging middle market companies that aligns perfectly with our target market. Throughout his successful career, Mark has placed a priority focus on delivering smart and timely credit to our most significant industry segment, government service contractors. In this expansionary position, Mark will play a critical role in further elevating Access National as the bank of choice for emerging middle market businesses in the Washington Metropolitan Market.”
“As a former colleague, I admire the drive and entrepreneurial spirit Mike Clarke and Bob Shoemaker put into play when they launched Access National nearly 17 years ago,” Moore said. “It was truly organized by experienced bankers and built for business. As we explored this idea of joining together, I became increasingly impressed with the Access culture that favors strong credit skills and business acumen aimed at helping middle market companies and their leaders build and preserve wealth. This high-profile leadership role allows me to further shape and advance a reputation as the bank of choice for middle market companies. Importantly, we will continue to serve clients in a way that also sustains the legacy of exceptional financial performance that protects Bank depositors and rewards our shareholders.”
As a primary representative of the Bank, Moore will assume leadership for raising visibility, accelerating business development and delivering targeted growth. He will also work on the development of next-generation management succession by first mentoring existing talent and then recruiting qualified and ambitious managers, lenders and credit professionals.
Moore brings 30 years of experience to the position, having most recently served as Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of John Marshall Bank. He’s also served as Chairman of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce (now Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce); Chairman of the Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF); Vice Chairman of the Advisory Board of Virginia Tech’s Finance Department of the Pamplin College of Business; and Leadership Fairfax Class of 2000.
