When TowneBank opened in 1999, the vision was to build, not only a great hometown bank, but a community asset that would enhance the quality of life in the cities TowneBank serves. Chairman and CEO, Bob Aston, explains. “To us, it’s about building relationships and supporting our community.”
Today, as one of the top community banks in Virginia with assets of more than $4.4 billion, TowneBank is well-known for putting relationships first and that includes exquisite member service as well as a work environment where everyone is family.
Towne offers exceptional benefits and professional growth opportunities to its employees. “Our employees know that they are valued here and as a result, we have very low turnover and high job satisfaction,” said Kim Ritter, Director of Human Resources. “There is also a sense of empowerment. Towne employees are empowered to make decisions to do the right thing for our members.”
Employees enjoy working for an organization that gives back to the community. As further evidence of its commitment to the community, Towne offers paid time off during working hours to support non-profit organizations and programs. This culture of caring that family members demonstrate every day represents the true heart of TowneBank.
TowneBank’s family of companies include mortgage, real estate, property management, insurance, investments and employee benefit management . “We have quite a diverse family with varied backgrounds and expertise,” notes Ritter, “but we are all connected by the motivation to serve others.”
