Sharifaie Rejoins Access Bank as AVP, Commercial Lending Team


Access National Bank added Veronica Sharifaie to its expanding Commercial Lending Team as an assistant vice presidents in the group’s dental segment.

Sharifaie entered commercial banking in 2006 with Access National Bank after starting her career as a relationship banking manager at BB&T and later as a consumer loan processor/underwriter with JPMorgan Chase. During her initial tenure at Access, she held various positions, including portfolio management associate, loan documentation analyst and credit analyst/real estate manager.

She later gained experience with Commercial Real Estate while working as a commercial real estate and credit analyst at Virginia Heritage Bank in Tysons Corner.

Most recently, she served as vice president, portfolio management officer with Freedom Bank in Fairfax, VA, where she continued to focus on commercial real estate transactions, such as acquisition, development and construction analysis, and cash flow analysis of income-producing properties.

“I am particularly excited to rejoin Access now that I have had the opportunity to observe the bank from the viewpoint of a competitor,” Sharifaie added. “From this perspective, I am impressed with how Access can achieve significant growth while remaining committed to its core values and the communities it serves.”

“Veronica is a gifted lender whose skills transcend many important industry verticals,” said John Yaremchuk, EVP and leader of the bank’s dental segment. “I am delighted to have her on this emergent dental team as we gain increasing momentum for a prosperous 2019 and beyond.”
