Hampton Roads Bankshares Announces CFO Transition

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:HMPR) (the "Company"), the holding company for The Bank of Hampton Roads ("BHR") and Shore Bank, today announced that Stephen P. Theobald, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will be leaving the Company on March 31, 2013 to accept a CFO position with another financial services firm. The Company will conduct a search for a successor.   

Douglas J. Glenn, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Chief Executive Officer of BHR, said, "Steve has done an outstanding job of leading and enhancing our Finance function and has played an important role in the execution of our plan to strengthen our balance sheet, improve operating efficiency and profitability, and become the premier community bank in our region. We will miss Steve and will act expeditiously to appoint a successor of his caliber." 

Glenn added, "As demonstrated by our press release on January 30, 2013, we made substantial progress on many fronts in 2012. I am confident that we can sustain this progress in 2013 and beyond."  

Theobald said, "Working with the team at Hampton Roads Bankshares has been a great experience. I am particularly proud of the progress we have made over the last three years toward returning the Company to profitability and I leave with confidence that the progress will continue. While I was not seeking employment outside the Company, I was recruited for an attractive position that not only fits with my professional goals, but is also a welcomed opportunity to work closer to my home and family in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area."
