EagleBank's Bob Pincus Announces Retirement


The vice chairman of the board of directors for Eagle Bancorp and EagleBank, Bob Pincus, will retire at the end of this year.

Bob, pictured above with legendary caterer Susan Lacz, has held the two positions since 2008, when EagleBank merged with Fidelity & Trust Bank. In that time, he has helped to grow the bank's assets from $1.4B to nearly $7B

“Bob has been a fixture at EagleBank for the past eight years and in the Washington banking community for four decades,” EagleBank CEO Ron Paul said in a release."  

Bob began his banking career in 1971 at DC National Bank, where he was promoted to president and CEO and grew the bank's assets from $180M to $1.2B. In 1991, he founded Franklin National Bank and served as its CEO until it was acquired by BB&T. He became non-executive chairman of Fidelity & Trust Bank in 2005 before its merger with EagleBank. Bob has also served on a number of influential DC-area boards and helped lead several philanthropies, many of them focused on education access for inner city youth. 

"I'm most proud of being a leader and creating a team of individuals that exceeded all expectations personally and collectively," Bob told Bisnow this morning. "It has been very gratifying, being in a position to give back to the community and make it a better place to live and work."  

Bob's first post-retirement trip will be to Sun Valley to ski in two weeks, followed by some time at his home in Naples, FL. When he comes back, he says he will spend his time volunteering and may serve on more boards or in consulting roles to assist companies.
