Robert F. Lowe

In 1965, Lowe entered the management training program of State Planters Bank in Richmond, Va. In 1969, he accepted a position with Industrial Bank of Lexington and joined Lexington State Bank in 1970. Lowe was elected Vice President in 1973. He was elected Senior Vice President of the Bank in 1980 and Executive Vice President in 1982. In 1983 Lowe was elected a Director of the Corporation and the Bank. On January 1, 1984, he was elected President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and the Bank, and on January 1, 1990, Lowe was elected Chairman of both the Corporation and the Bank.

Lowe’s steady rise through the banking ranks can also be attributed to the fact that he grew up in a banking family. Lowe’s father, Lester Vincent Lowe, Sr., was a Vice President with United Carolina Bank when he died suddenly in 1971, and his brother, L. Vincent Lowe, Jr., was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BB&T Corporation when he died suddenly in 1989.

Over the years, Lowe has served the banking industry in many capacities. He was Treasurer of the North Carolina Bankers Association from 1984 to 1986 and was elected Chairman of the Association for the year 1992. He also served on the Board of Directors of the American Bankers Association from 1999 to 2002 and was Vice Chairman of its Government Relations Council from 2002 to 2003. He was elected Treasurer of the Association from 2003 to 2005. Lowe has been active on numerous community and state boards, such as: Wake Forest Baptist Health – Lexington Medical Center; the J. Smith Young YMCA; North Carolina Citizens for Business & Industry; and College Foundation Inc. Under Lowe, the Bank continued its advocacy in supporting the communities it served as a strong corporate citizen.

“Bob has been a wonderful mentor and a great friend,” said Pressley A. Ridgill, president and chief executive officer of NewBridge Bancorp and NewBridge Bank. “He is a well-respected, fair-minded and responsible banker who helped shape NewBridge Bank’s corporate vision of employee teamwork, strong client relationships and organizational efficiency. Bob’s wisdom and expertise will be sorely missed by all of us who have had the pleasure of working with him.”
