Old Point Trust begins search for new chief
CEO Eugene Jordan II will transition to general counsel for parent company
Old Point Trust & Financial Services President, Chairman and CEO Eugene M. Jordan II will become general counsel and corporate secretary for the Hampton-based wealth management services provider’s parent company, Old Point Financial Corp.
Jordan, who has been Old Point Trust’s president and CEO for 19 years, will remain in his position as he aids in the executive search for his successor. With more than 30 years of legal experience, Jordan became chairman of Old Point Trust’s board of directors two-and-a-half years ago, according to the announcement.
Jordan’s transition to a new corporate position reflects the company’s need for internal general counsel as it grows, said Robert F. Shuford Jr., Old Point Financial Corp.’s chairman, president and CEO, in a statement.
Old Point Financial Corp. is the parent company of Old Point National Bank and Old Point Trust & Financial Services. In addition to serving the Hampton Roads and Richmond regions, it operates a Charlotte-based mortgage loan production office.
Jordan holds a bachelor’s degree from North Carolina Wesleyan College and a law degree from Campbell University
