We're about to get bigger! News of our acquisition of Virginia Community Bank hit the press this morning and we're excited to celebrate it's addition to the BRB team! With any major news, we understand that our customers may have questions. Follow the link at the bottom of this article to review the official press release.
1. What does this mean for our customers?
Nothing will change for our customers except a more convenient offering. This simply means that BRB customers will have access to additional branch locations throughout Virginia and access to even better services.
2. Is Blue Ridge Bank changing?
No. We are remaining Blue Ridge Bank, while we're gaining the opportunity to share better banking with new communities. This move further moves us in our mission as an institution for the community:
"Our mission is to create financial value and opportunity for our shareholders, customers, employees, and communities by providing evolving, flexible, and customized solutions for the needs of our clients... and to have fun while doing it!"
We're a true community bank and that isn't changing! Our goal has always been to increase the financial well-being of our communities and show them a smarter way to bank.
3. Why Virginia Community Bank?
Virginia Community Bank successfully serviced Central Virginia since its establishment in 1976. Their staff and management team share our passion for financial well-being and our philosophy for better banking solutions. VCB has well-established deposit and loan portfolios which will help us better our position to compete in our growing markets.
4. What's with the logo change?
The Blue Ridge mountains are home to our namesake and we're not letting go of that. The new symbol is simply a dollar sign ($) that highlights our goal to grow wealth within the communities that we serve. We love our mountains, and always will. This new symbol foreshadows what is yet to come for Blue Ridge Bank and our customers!
