FNB Moves Ahead with Commitment to Expand Maryland Presence
BALTIMORE, Sept. 10, 2013
BALTIMORE, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --In addition to the Company's recent
announcement to acquire Baltimore-based BCSB Bancorp, Inc., First National
Bank has revealed plans to establish a new regional headquarters in downtown
Baltimore, Maryland. FNB will occupy more than 11,000 square feet of office
space in a prominent building that will be known as the First National Bank
Building. The location, which is expected to be ready for occupancy before the
end of 2013, is located at 300 E. Lombard Street.
"We are focused on growing our Maryland market. Our new regional headquarters
will bring together a diverse team of products specialists who will work
collaboratively to meet the needs of our clients," noted Vincent J. Delie,
Jr., President and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation. "Establishing a regional
headquarters in downtown Baltimore demonstrates our commitment to support the
local business community and to contribute to the City's economic viability."
Delie noted that FNB will continue to tap the highly skilled workforce present
in the greater Baltimore area to support continued expansion. Since FNB's
entry into the Maryland market in April 2013, former Suntrust executives J.
MacGregor (Mac) Tisdale and Darlene Miglioretti have joined First National
Bank's leadership team as President of the Maryland Region and Retail Banking
Executive, respectively. They are supported by a team of local experts in
Wealth Management, Private Banking, Business Banking and other financial
Tisdale expanded on the benefits of the new Baltimore headquarters. "A
downtown presence is obviously good for the Bank, because it will raise our
visibility in the marketplace. We'll also be better able to establish
ourselves as community leaders who are willing to invest in the City and
contribute to its revitalization. These factors, along with our continued
growth, will result in a definite win for the market."
Kirby Fowler, President of the Downtown Baltimore Partnership, echoed the
positive impact of FNB's decision. "First National Bank is a nationally
recognized, rapidly growing financial organization. They could choose to
establish their regional headquarters most anywhere, but they clearly see the
benefit of being in downtown Baltimore."
Pending regulatory and shareholder approvals, the expected acquisition of
Baltimore County Savings Bank in the first quarter of 2014 will add 16 offices
in the greater Baltimore area, bringing First National Bank's Maryland branch
count to 25. Additionally, First National Bank's deposit market share is
expected to reach a top ten spot within the Baltimore metropolitan statistical
In addition to a state of the art, full-service branch located on the first
floor, FNB's new Baltimore headquarters will house approximately 50 financial
professionals in Retail and Commercial Banking, Wealth Management, Insurance,
Treasury Management and Private Banking. Area businesses and busy
professionals will have access to one-stop comprehensive financial services at
the 300 E. Lombard Office, which is conveniently located within blocks of
Baltimore's Inner Harbor area.
FNB will maintain its presence in Annapolis.
