TowneBank began in April 1999 with start-up capital from over 4,000 shareholders, 86 employees, and 66 directors to open three banking offices. Now, with 42 banking offices spanning from Charlotte to the Outer Banks in North Carolina and from Hampton Roads to Richmond in Virginia, we have become one of the largest banks headquartered in Virginia. Though, we've never lost sight of our roots: local decision-making; community board leadership; volunteerism, philanthropy, and a culture of caring — it's all part of the Towne experience.
TowneBank will be a relationship and friendship driven local bank focused on basic human values that will serve to create a warm sense of belonging and financial well-being among our family of members.
We will offer a competitive array of business and personal financial services, delivered with only the highest ethical standards. Our commitment to exquisite service for our members will lead to our ability to create a reasonable rate of return for our shareholders, a bright future for our dedicated bankers, and a leadership role for our bank in promoting the social, cultural, and economic well-being of our community.
