MVB’s model now goes beyond traditional banking and leverages the disruption occurring in the financial services industry to the benefit of our shareholders.
Formed on October 30, 1997, MVB Bank was chartered under the laws of the State of West Virginia and commenced operations on January 4, 1999. MVB Financial Corp. (“MVB Financial”) was formed on January 1, 2004, as a bank holding company and, effective December 2012, became a financial holding company. The company is headquartered in Fairmont, West Virginia.
In December 2012, MVB Bank acquired Potomac Mortgage Group (“PMG”), now MVB Mortgage, a mortgage company based in the Northern Virginia area with offices in Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and South Carolina. MVB Mortgage is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MVB Bank.
The MVB Bank footprint now includes 15 banking centers, 12 in West Virginia and three in Virginia. West Virginia locations include Bridgeport and Clarksburg in Harrison County; two locations in Fairmont (Virginia Avenue and I-79 Technology Park) in Marion County; three locations in Morgantown (Sabraton, Suncrest and Cheat Lake) in Monongalia County; four locations in the Eastern Panhandle (Charles Town, Inwood and offices in Martinsburg on Edwin Miller Blvd. and Foxcroft Avenue); and an office in Kanawha County in downtown Charleston. In 2015, MVB Bank opened its first banking center in Fairfax County in Northern Virginia in Reston, Virginia. In 2017, MVB opened its second Virginia banking center in Leesburg, in Loudoun County. In 2018, MVB Bank opened a banking center in McLean, in Fairfax County, relocated its Reston banking center and opened an expanded regional corporate headquarters in Reston.
The MVB Community Development Corporation (CDC) was established as a subsidiary of MVB Bank in 2017. The CDC, as well as its subsidiary, the MVB Community Development Partnership, Inc. (CDPI), were designed to help meet the financial needs of the communities MVB serves. The goals of the CDC are to transform low-income communities, create economic opportunities, and finance qualified businesses through the provision of capital investments and lending in West Virginia, Southwestern Pennsylvania, and Northern Virginia in a manner that vitally impacts the lives of individuals and communities.
MVB Financial Corp. started trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market® under the symbol “MVBF” on December 7, 2017. MVB became the first West Virginia-based bank in 18 years to be listed on the Nasdaq. On March 28, 2018, MVB celebrated this major milestone in its growth journey by participating in the Nasdaq Closing Bell Ringing at the Nasdaq MarketSite Studio in Times Square.
In June 2018, the FTSE Russell added MVB Financial to the Russell 2000® Index as part of its annual index reconstitution, which was another big step in MVB’s growth journey.
In September 2019, Chartwell Compliance joined the MVB family through its acquisition as a wholly-owned subsidiary of MVB Bank. The move further reinforced MVB’s 3.0 strategy of seeking “blue ocean” opportunities and differentiated MVB’s expanding Fintech vertical with its commitment to regulatory and compliance excellence.
In fall 2019, MVB opened an office in Fintech-friendly Salt Lake City.
In September 2019, MVB was chosen as a Sandler O’Neil Sm-All Star for 2019. MVB was one of only 30 major exchange-traded banks to earn this honor and one of only 13 new members to the 2019 class.
