ROCKVILLE, Md., May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ed "Jed" Barry, CEO of Capital Bank N.A., is a finalist for the prestigious EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Award in the Mid-Atlantic program. The awards program, which is celebrating its 30th year, recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as financial performance, innovation and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Since taking on the CEO role in 2012, Barry has led his bank to be one of the top banks in the nation of its size. For the past two years (2014 and 2015) Capital Bank has been named one of the best performing community banks in the nation in its asset class of under $1 billion, according to annual rankings by S&P Global Market Intelligence (formerly SNL Financial).
