bank opens

Cardinal Bank, the only locally managed, full-service community bank

in Manassas-Prince William County, opened its doors last week.

The bank, located at 9626 Center Street in Manassas, offers a broad range

of modern banking services to local residents, professionals and small

to medium sized businesses.

In addition, it is distinguished from the larger, impersonal and out-of-state

banks dominating northern Virginia because of its independent and locally-based

executive management team.

The bank is located in a new 6,200-square foot building and will have

14 employees when fully staffed.

Wayne Broadwater is chairman of the board and other members include Jana

Yeates, Mike Garcia, State Del. Jack Rollison, R-Woodbridge, John Elkin,

Mike Lubeley, Emad Saadeh, Harvey Hutzinger and bank president Christopher

W. Bergstrom.

The bank is a subsidiary of Cardinal Financial Corporation with headquarters

in Fairfax.

Commenting on the bank’s opening, Corporation President L. Burwell Gunn

said: ”I am very excited abut the Cardinal Bank’s opening and confident

that the bank will offer customers a superior and unique banking experience.

”This bank’s opening is a significant step forward for our corporation

and an integral part of our plans to establish four strategically located

and independently managed banks in northern Virginia. Bergstrom and the

talented team he has assembled, have impressive credentials within the banking

and financial sectors and, just as importantly, very strong community ties.”

Bergstrom added: A compelling feature of this bank’s operating strategy

is that the management and the board of directors have lived and worked

in Manassas and the county collectively for over 300 years. A management

team that is as familiar with the community’s needs as we are is going to

provide higher quality, personalized service.

”In addition, as a full-service community bank, we offer our customers

an extensive range of contemporary banking products and services designed

to fit their specific needs. We are committed to providing this community

a complete and gratifying banking experience.”

Consumer banking services offered by the bank include FDIC insured accounts,

customized loans, a variety of deposit programs, check imaging,investment

services, credit and debit cards, personalized loan plans and optional automated

telephone attendant.

The bank will hold its grand opening on Sept. 9.

Manassas Journal Messenger

Pacel Corp. last week signed a lease to double office space at its headquarters

at 8870 Rixlew Lane in Manassas.

The firm will expand from 4,100 square feet to 8,200 square feet as of

Sept. 1 as part of a major expansion plan that will also increase the number

of current personnel from 15 to 30 by the end of Summer.

Just three months ago, Pacel had six full-time employees. The expansion

was made to accommodate increased business opportunities and activities.

The new expanded area will be home to a team of programmers, web and

database developers, technicians, additional sales force and supervisory

personnel responsible for the firm’s rapidly growing internet business which

provides consulting and development, designs hosts and maintains web sites

and offers software and hardware for business needs.

”This is just another step in our continuing growth process, giving

users the opportunities to shop, compare and order a variety of items On-Line

with a secure environment,” said David Calkins, president.

Within the past two weeks, the company launched the Morton Downey Jr.

Web Show with early indications that the web site will be a huge success.

Calkins said that Pacel was ”close” to finalizing deals to launch other

high visibility, income-producing web sites in the near future that could

triple the company’s revenue stream.

The company was founded in 1994 as a software development and systems

integration firm specializing in providing software products that improve

business flow processes, using electronic documents that are involved in

the day to day operations of any business.

Pacel provides high-value technology solutions allowing clients to enter

the new century with the highest level of productivity and capability.
