First National Bank Continues to Expand Team of Experts in Maryland

July 31, 2014

Baltimore, MD – July 31, 2014 – First National Bank continues to increase its presence in Baltimore and surrounding areas, attracting both consumer and commercial talent to the company’s multi-disciplined team of financial experts. Since its official opening of the Baltimore headquarters building in mid-February, First National Bank has continued to grow its leadership team by recruiting local, experienced individuals throughout the region. ”

“Since our entry into the market in April 2013, we have not only expanded our physical presence with the addition of 25 branches which includes the opening of our Baltimore Regional Headquarters building in February, but we have also been able to acquire the top talent,” stated J. MacGregor (Mac) Tisdale, President of First National Bank’s Maryland Region. “Our deep product set and commitment to the region and our clients have made us an employer of choice in Maryland.”

First National Bank's Metropolitan Expansion
On the heels of First National Bank’s merger with Baltimore County Savings Bank (BCSB) in February 2014, the Bank benefitted from the addition of 16 branches to expand client convenience and now holds a top ten market share in the Baltimore Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Following the conclusion of its pending merger with OBA Financial expected in September 2014, Maryland’s total branch count will increase to 31. The activity in the Baltimore MSA follows the growth and expansion pattern that First National Bank achieved in the MSAs of Pittsburgh, PA, where it holds the number three retail deposit market share, and Cleveland, OH, where it moved from 0 to top 15 market share.

Comprehensive Client Services
In addition to the convenience offered through the Company’s branch network, First National Bank also offers a wide range of consumer and commercial banking solutions that includes consumer banking, corporate banking, small business banking, treasury management services, investment real estate financing, business credit, capital markets, international banking, mortgage banking, wealth management, insurance and lease financing.
