Burke&Herbert Bank & Trust Company recently announced that W. Scott McSween has been appointed as president and chief operating officer, effective July 13, 2009.
Mr. McSween joins the bank following 12 years as executive vice president of the retail banking division at Chevy Chase Bank, which was acquired by Capital One Financial Corporation earlier this year. Mr. McSween joined Chevy Chase Bank following 20 years at BayBanks in Massachusetts.
At Chevy Chase Bank, Mr. McSween was responsible for all aspects of retail banking, including the branch network, customer contact center, small business banking, marketing and product management, bank operations, and the Hispanic banking initiative.
Mr. McSween led the retail banking division through a time of considerable growth and expansion, and oversaw significant investment in its product line and the launch of the small business banking program, according to Burke & Herbert.
We undertook a nationwide search for this position and are delighted to have found someone with Scotts expertise right here in the capital region, said former President and COO E. Hunt Burke.
Hunt Burke will now assume the role of chief executive officer and Charlie Collum will continue to serve as chairman of the board.
