MainStreet Bancshares Appoints Thomas Cary Business Banking Director

MainStreet Bancshares, Inc., (Nasdaq: MNSB), parent company of MainStreet Bank, announced today that Thomas Cary has been appointed to lead MainStreet Bank’s Business Banking division.

Mr. Cary (48) has been a Business Banker with MainStreet Bank for 10 years. He started his banking career in 1989 during his freshmen year at George Mason University as a teller for a local bank. He worked his way into Management over the next 14 years at the same time the bank grew through acquisition, ultimately becoming one of the largest Banks in the country. He soon realized that he needed to return to what had always been his passion – community banking.

Tom has a bachelor’s degree in Finance from George Mason University. He currently serves as the Treasurer and a member of the Board of the Barber Family Foundation (BFF), a local non-profit helping to send children of military families to college. Tom has always been very active in the community and is currently a member of the Central Fairfax Chamber.

“Tom is always willing to do what it takes to earn a new relationship and maintain existing relationships, whether with customers or colleagues,” said Abdul Hersiburane, President of MainStreet Bank. “He is a natural leader and a passionate community banker.”

“I am honored and excited for the opportunity to lead our business banking team to the next level as we continue to grow MainStreet Bank,” said Mr. Cary. “Our Business Bankers are the best of the best, and partnering with our expert team of lenders, Connect Support team and our Payments Department, we will continue to deliver the absolute best and comprehensive banking experience to our clients.”
