BALTIMORE, MD, May 10, 2018

Howard Bank, a growth-focused community bank serving businesses, professionals and individuals in the Greater Baltimore area, celebrated the grand opening of its Remington branch with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 10th along with community members and the Greater Remington Improvement Association (GRIA).

The Remington branch is the first to open after Howard Bank’s $2.1 Billion acquisition of First Mariner Bank this year. Howard Bank President Rob Kunisch and Remington Branch Manager Christine Nicaj attended the ceremony.

“We selected Remington to show our commitment to Baltimore city, and reinforce our promise to invest in local neighborhoods,” said Mary Ann Scully, CEO and Chairman of Howard Bank. “We are excited to be surrounded by small businesses and a dynamic community.”

Board members from the GRIA joined Howard Bank leadership to celebrate the opening. The independent, resident-based neighborhood association works to protect Remington’s diversity, vibrancy and community connectedness.

“When we heard Howard Bank was coming to the neighborhood, our board couldn’t have been more thrilled,” said Phong Le, GRIA President. “We are proud to welcome a company that supports local business, and understands our community needs.”

Other attendees included Baltimore City District 12 Councilman Robert Stokes Sr.; Donald Manekin, Senior Vice President of Seawall Development; Glenn Cavasina, President and Robin Michael, Chief Financial Officer of Wilhelm Builders, the management company behind the development.

Keeping close to its community values, Howard Bank will continue to be an active supporter of the growing Remington area. The bank was a lead sponsor for the first Remington festival, RemFest on Saturday, May 12th .
