New Loan Production Offices

Loan offices in Augusta County
On October 1, 2012, F&M Bank opened a loan production office in Fishersville, VA. This office is currently staffed with a Business Development/Commercial Loan Officer. Future plans include hiring one or more Mortgage Lenders in cooperation with our affiliate VBS Mortgage. Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented “We’re excited to be expanding further into the Augusta County market. We previously only provided limited services to Augusta County through our courier service and the proximity of our branch office in Bridgewater, VA, which served portions of northern Augusta County. Fishersville is a vibrant and growing market within Augusta County and offers wonderful growth opportunities for our bank.”

On September 25, 2012, F&M Bank began operations of a loan production office in Penn Laird, VA which specializes in providing automobile financing through a network of automobile dealers. Dean Withers stated “We are fortunate to staff our new Dealer Finance Division with three officers that have extensive experience in Dealer Finance. This office is serving the automobile finance needs for customers of dealers throughout the existing geographic footprint of F&M Bank. Approximately thirty dealers have signed contracts with us to originate loans on behalf of F&M Bank. We will also continue to seek opportunities to add more dealers to our network.”

 

Finally, Withers noted, “We’re gratified by the reception we are already receiving from the automobile dealers and commercial customers in these two new markets for F&M Bank. It is an exciting time for us as we continue to grow and expand on the community banking foundation that was first started by a group of enterprising farmers and merchants over 100 years ago.”
