MainStreet Bank Named Outstanding Large Business by Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce
Galaxy Award Recognizes Bank’s Community Focus and Support for Local Businesses

MainStreet Bancshares, Inc., announced that its subsidiary MainStreet Bank has been honored as the outstanding large business of the year by the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The $1.7 billion-asset bank received the civic organization’s Galaxy Award, which recognizes 2021’s outstanding business with 50 or more employees. The award is given to a business that demonstrates excellence in business philosophy and support of the business community, according to the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“Since MainStreet Bank opened its doors in 2004, it has been a champion for economic advancement in and beyond our Northern Virginia communities,” said John Boylan, the chamber’s president and CEO. “Jeff Dick, the bank’s Chairman and CEO, has shared tremendous energy with the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce and has been personally invested in its mission from the day he joined.”

During the depths of the pandemic, Boylan noted, the bank jumped into action with its participation in the federal Paycheck Protection Program. Dick has chaired and served on the chamber’s board of directors and spearheaded the creation of the Dulles Regional Charitable Fund in 2020, alongside a bank client, Terra Site Constructors.

“The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce is a vital asset to our business community, and MainStreet Bank is a proud member,” Dick said. “We are humbled to be recognized for living out our mission as a community bank by providing steady support to the individuals, businesses, and other organizations that form Northern Virginia’s rich tapestry.”

Dick noted that the bank’s parent, MainStreet Bancshares Inc., is taking these efforts to the next level with the formation of MainStreet Community Capital, a new community development subsidiary. MainStreet Community Capital’s focus is to invigorate distressed, low-income communities in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area by providing capital and other financial services.

“The chamber has helped the bank since the very beginning to grow and become woven into the community,” said Katie Tzitzouris, Senior Vice President and Senior Business Banker at MainStreet Bank. “Now it’s coming full circle as we focus on helping the chamber get its message across.” Tzitzouris, who is in her second term on the chamber’s board of directors, says the bank’s role in forming the Dulles Regional Charitable Fund laid the groundwork for creation of the chamber’s Corporate Social Opportunity Committee, which she co-chairs.

MainStreet Bank has been committed to innovation from its earliest days, when it established itself as a pioneer of online business banking. Since then, the bank has pursued an environmentally friendly “branch-lite” strategy that gives business customers the ability to Put Our Bank in Your Office® using robust and easy-to-use online business banking technology.
