Bank of Georgetown announced last week the relocation of its corporate headquarters and the opening of an adjoining branch at 1115 30th St., NW, just south of M Street. The bank’s 11th location in the Washington metropolitan area will be named “The Winsor Branch” in honor of its co-founder and late chairman, Curtin Winsor III, who died in December 2012.
“Curt poured his heart and soul into the creation and success of Bank of Georgetown,” said Mike Fitzgerald, chairman, president, and CEO of Bank of Georgetown. “We miss him greatly but know he would be proud of the path on which we are progressing. We hope to honor his legacy with our newest branch and through our unwavering commitment to the bank’s mission of providing highly personalized relationship banking service to local businesses and residents.”
After 10 years and multiple expansions at its original location on 31st Street, nearly 50 employees moved into the 17,400 square-foot facility, which features multiple conference rooms, a boardroom and more space for day-to-day lending and deposit operations. Bank executives felt strongly that leaving their original headquarters did not require moving out of Georgetown.
“It is important for us to invest in the resources necessary to support our consistent growth in assets and customers. This move reflects our commitment to building a premier Washington D.C.-based community bank,” Fitzgerald said. “We are excited about our new home and look forward to serving a larger portion of the Georgetown community, while continuing to listen and cater to the needs of businesses throughout the District, Maryland and Virginia.”
The full-service adjoining branch is the bank’s second in the neighborhood. Its first facility opened in 2005 at the corner of Wisconsin and K Street.
