MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Dominion National Bank today announced that Stephanie Lykins-Harvey will serve as Director for Retail Banking for its growing branch network in Northern Virginia and the Charlottesville area.
In her new role, Lykins-Harvey will focus on further enhancing the customer experience at Old Dominion by building on the strengths, service and expertise of its retail teams, while leveraging the bank's investments in customer-friendly online and mobile technology.
"Stephanie's hands-on experience in every aspect of community banking, combined with her exceptional leadership and management skills, make her the clear choice to lead our retail teams as we grow our footprint in the Northern Virginia market and deepen our commitment in Charlottesville," said Old Dominion President and CEO Mark Merrill. "She is truly a premier community banker who will bring positive energy, a commitment to collaboration, and a passion for building teams that are focused on providing exceptional service to our customers."
Prior to joining Old Dominion, Lykins-Harvey was a senior vice president managing Northern Virginia branch networks for two publicly traded community banks. Since 2014, she served as regional sales and service manager with McLean-based Cardinal Financial Corporation, responsible for 15 Cardinal Bank branches. Previously, she was with Arlington-based Virginia Commerce Bank for nearly 15 years and oversaw eight of the Virginia Commerce Bancorp subsidiary's branches as regional manager until the bank's acquisition. A deep commitment to exceptional customer service has been the hallmark of Lykins-Harvey's career since she started working in a community bank branch nearly 20 years ago.
Lykins-Harvey's track record of leading retail teams at larger banks will prove valuable as Old Dominion executes its strategic growth plan, which includes adding full-service branches in Northern Virginia and downtown Charlottesville. Previously, the bank opened its Fairfax County loan production office in McLean, Virginia offering a small presence to meet the consumer and commercial loan needs of the community. With its first full service location planned for the near future, the Bank will focus on driving significant growth in Northern Virginia, particularly among small and mid-sized business customers, while maintaining its strong presence in the Charlottesville area.
Lykins-Harvey holds a dual-degree from George Mason University and is a graduate of the Virginia Bankers Association School of Bank Management, as well as the Leadership Prince William program. Throughout her career she has maintained a strong commitment to community service, volunteering for the Prince William chapter of the Special Olympics, ACT (Action in Community), Soles for Souls, and the SERVE Shelter. From 2007 to 2013, she served on the Loan Committees for the Vehicles for Change and Ways to Work programs for Northern Virginia Family Services, and from 2007 to 2010, she served on the Board and as President for the Manassas City Public Schools Education Foundation from 2007 to 2010.
