Virginia National Bankshares Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia on February 21, 2013 at the direction of the Board of Directors of Virginia National Bank (the "Bank") for the purpose of acquiring all of the outstanding shares of the Bank and becoming the holding company of the Bank. On June 19, 2013, the shareholders of the Bank approved the Reorganization Agreement and Plan of Share Exchange, dated March 6, 2013, whereby the Bank would reorganize into a holding company structure (the "Reorganization").
Virginia National Bank, the principal operating subsidiary of the Company, was organized in 1998 under federal law as a national banking association to engage in a general commercial and retail banking business. The Bank received its charter from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the “OCC”) and commenced operations on July 29, 1998. The Bank is headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Bank's deposits are insured up to the maximum amount provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Act by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). Prior to July, 2018, the Bank had one wholly owned subsidiary, VNBTrust, National Association (“VNBTrust”), a national trust bank formed in 2007. Effective July 1, 2018, VNBTrust was merged into Virginia National Bank, and the Bank continues to offer investment management, wealth advisory and trust and estate administration services under the name of VNB Wealth Management, also referred to herein as “VNB Wealth”. The Bank is subject to the supervision, examination and regulations of the OCC.
During 2018, the Company changed the structure of its VNB Wealth lines of business. The Company formed Masonry Capital Management, LLC (“Masonry Capital”), a registered investment adviser, to offer investment advisory and management services to clients through separately managed accounts and through one or more private investment fund(s). The Company believes the formation of Masonry Capital will allow the Company to offer its investment strategy to a wider range of clients.
