Paul, Chairman and CEO of Eagle and EagleBank said, “We are thrilled about the proposed acquisition of Alliance and Alliance Bank and the opportunities the combination creates for us in Northern Virginia. Both banks are similar in that we share a common vision and culture of providing outstanding customer service, and always putting customer relationships first. We look forward to serving the Alliance customers with our portfolio of deposit, cash management, and loan products. Most are specifically tailored for small and medium-sized businesses, law firms and other professional organizations. The combination with Alliance Bank is consistent with our stated desire to expand our presence in the Northern Virginia market. The addition of Alliance’s experienced, skilled bankers and branch network combined with our own organic growth gives EagleBank the ability to be a major factor in this dynamic market. In addition this really rounds out our footprint in the entire Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. We feel that banking customers in Northern Virginia will value our vision of providing superior customer service, making credit available to eligible borrowers, providing access to local leadership decision makers and commitment to the community.”
