Longtime bank president to retire
After leading the bank for 20 years, Bank of Clarke County President and CEO John Milleson announced Thursday he plans to retire this year.
His retirement is subject to the completion of a search process and transition for his successor.
Milleson was named president and CEO of the bank, and its parent company, Eagle Financial Services Inc., in 1999. He is the bank’s eighth president in its 139-year-history.
Milleson has worked for the bank since 1984.
Under his leadership, the bank’s assets grew from $153 million to nearly $800 million. The company has 13 locations in Clarke, Frederick and Loudoun counties and Winchester.
Milleson is a former chairman of the Virginia Bankers Association and is a member of American Bankers Association Government Relations Committee. He is a trustee at Grace Episcopal Church and chair of the Clarke County Economic Development Advisory Committee.
The board of directors has formed a search committee for Milleson’s and retained Korn Ferry, an executive search firm.
