Walsh and Rauner are ‘seasoned community bankers’

The National Capital Bank (NCB) of Washington said they will work with employees to find solutions to financial difficulties during the shutdown, saying "we are dedicated to helping our customers with all their banking needs – especially in times of need."

The National Capital Bank of Washington (NCB) announced today that Kathleen (Kate) Walsh Carr and Harold C. (Harry) Rauner will be joining its Board of Directors. 

Both Kate and Harry are seasoned community bankers, most recently with Cardinal Bank.  Prior to retirement Kate was the President of Cardinal’s Washington market and Harry was Regional President in the Fairfax market, following his tenure as President and Chief Executive Officer of The Business Bank.    

Each are well-respected in the industry and community and bring with them significant expertise in business development, strategic and tactical planning, as well as regulatory relations and compliance.  In addition, both are civic leaders serving as board members for chambers of commerce, business concerns, as well as charitable organizations. 

Carr is a former chair and board member for the District of Columbia Chamber of Commerce; she served as a member of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, the Board of Washington Trustees for the Federal City Council and a three-year term as Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.  She is currently chair of the Chevy Chase Land Company. 

Rauner, a graduate and prominent alumnus of George Mason University, serves on the Dean’s Council for its School of Business.  He is a former director of the Reston Chamber of Commerce, The Potomac Conservancy and The Rotary Club of Dunn Loring/Merrifield.  He is also a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Dulles Chamber of Commerce.

“Kate and Harry’s commercial banking experience, reputation in the industry and deep roots in the D.C. community are a wonderful compliment to NCB’s Board of Directors.  Their business acumen, leadership and community engagement align with the values of our company,” said Randy Anderson, President and CEO of National Capital Bank. “Both will provide key resources as the Bank executes its strategic plan for growth in the Washington Metro market.”
