Access National Bank Ranked Number One Small Business Lender In Washington Area

Access National Bank (NASDAQ: ANCX) today announced that it is the #1 ranked small business lender by dollar volume among all banks in the Washington Metropolitan Area District, according to the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) for the government fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2010. In 2009, the bank was the #1 SBA lender among community banks in the district, which includes Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland.

“We are proud of our SBA team members, who have lent more capital to local small businesses than our larger competitors, even in a down economy. Our Team is not sitting on the sidelines, but working overtime to make loans that will fuel growth and hiring in our communities,” said Michael Clarke, President and CEO of Access National Bank (ANB). “The newly passed Small Business Jobs Act will also stimulate lending in numerous ways, such as increasing maximum loan size from $2 million to $5 million. We are educating our current and future clients about how these loans can be used to buy a business, refinance debt, and obtain working capital.”

This year ANB increased its origination of SBA guaranteed loans in the district by 65 percent, from over $7 million in 2009 to over $12 million in 2010. The bank also has an outstanding record of low loan losses.

Ted Lauer, ANB’s SBA Department Manager and Senior Vice President, was recently honored as co-winner of the SBA’s Financial Services Champion of the Year for the district. For information on the SBA’s 7(a) loan guaranty program and recent changes, contact Mr. Lauer at 703-871-2104 or tlauer@AccessNationalBank.com.

Access National Bank is a subsidiary of Access National Corporation, headquartered in Reston, Virginia with $790 million in assets reported as of June 30, 2010. Additional information is available on our website at www.AccessNationalBank.com.
