Community bank veteran Jennifer L. Deacon joined FVCbank as executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Deacon, who will work out of FVCbank’s corporate headquarters in Fairfax, VA, joins the executive team as the bank continues to grow, approaching $1 billion in total assets.

Deacon follows former executive vice president and CFO Patricia A. Ferrick, who was promoted recently to president.

Deacon brings more than 20 years of community banking experience to FVCbank with a focus on accounting and finance. She most recently served as executive vice president, chief accounting officer and corporate secretary with Cardinal Bank. Deacon helped form Cardinal Bank in 1998 and grew the bank to more than $4.2 billion in total assets. Deacon previously worked in the accounting departments at George Mason Bank and Patriot National Bank.

“Jennifer’s extensive experience in community banking will serve FVCbank well as we continue our outstanding growth in the region,” said David W. Pijor, chairman and CEO of FVCbank. “As we’ve grown, we’ve selected wisely from known leaders in our community to oversee our success to build the best team of bankers for our customers and the shareholders we serve.”

Deacon is the latest executive to join FVCbank from Cardinal Bank. In June, Steven M. Wiltse, CPA, a former board member with Cardinal Financial, was named to FVCbank’s board of directors, and Thomas W. Grantham, also a Cardinal executive, was named as senior vice president of the bank’s commercial lending team in Arlington, VA.
