Eagle Financial in Va. taps insider as bank president

Eagle Financial Services in Berryville, Va., has a new bank president.

The $1.4 billion-asset company said in a press release Wednesday that Joe Zmitrovich will remain the chief banking officer at Bank of Clarke County. 

Zmitrovich will oversee the bank’s merger and acquisition strategy, including branches, niche businesses and whole banks. He will continue to handle commercial lending, retail banking, cash management, loan operations and loan servicing. 

Zmitrovich succeeded Brandon Lorey, who remains CEO.

Zmitrovich joined the bank in 2016 as a lending officer. He became the chief banking officer last year.

“Given the increased complexity of our organization, this was a natural next step for both the bank and for Joe,” Lorey said in the release. “I am thrilled to leverage Joe’s background and expertise in mergers and acquisitions as we continue to look for acquisition opportunities, grow organically, and enhance shareholder value.”
