We began our endeavor to build a strong and dependable community bank more than fifteen years ago. After a groundbreaking capital raise in record time, we knew we had laid the cornerstone for a strong foundation – our investors believed in our dedicated team and sound strategy.
We stand out from the crowd by taking a different approach to banking. We put our customers first, guiding them every step of the way. We take tremendous pride in everything we do and see it through from start to finish. When you present us with a challenge, we make ourselves available to you and perform the banking services you expect from a trusted advisor. Because of our size and approach to banking, we have the ability to think outside the box and provide creative solutions. We take ownership of your issue and consider it ours, and are relentless in our pursuit to find a solution that’s best for you. We understand business and have an entrepreneurial spirit that embraces growth and change – keeping us ahead of the curve.
We commit to our customers and create meaningful relationships that demonstrate we personally care. We do not just walk the walk, but stand behind what we say, and do it. Our clients can easily access our CEO and senior management team. Our leaders create and foster relationships with our clients, further demonstrating our lasting commitment. We strive to provide each customer with individualized service and attention.
This unique approach has successfully led us to continued growth. Since our first branch opened in Potomac, MD, in 2003, we have added four more locations in the Greater Washington area and expanded our headquarters in Bethesda.
As the premier commercial bank, Congressional Bank provides business loan and deposit services and financial solutions that deliver outstanding results every time.
We Care About Our Community
We are dedicated to being a thoughtful and generous corporate citizen and member of the greater Washington D.C. community. From collecting winter coats and shoes for the homeless, to serving as the title sponsor of the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary/ YMCA Turkey Chase for 3 years in a row, our community impact reaches far and wide.
Our employees volunteer their time and money to local charities, including Rebuilding Together® Montgomery County and the Susan G. Komen® Race for the Cure. As a collective group, we are proud to support our community with a regular volunteer shift at Miriam’s Kitchen in Washington DC. We partner with our business customers to create change and drive improvement in our communities.
Our belief is that things always come full-circle. We work here, we bank here, we live here – therefore, we give here.
Congressional Bank also focuses on being a Certified Green Business in Montgomery County. Through our efforts we became the first bank to earn the Montgomery County Green Business Certification, and we are partners with Bethesda Green in their efforts to promote sustainability and be a “green” role model.
Most recently, we have made sweeping changes in each of our branches to help preserve and protect our environment, including creating a sustainability policy to outline our recycling efforts and eliminating plastic water bottles and replacing them with reusable tumblers and filtered water. However, in the event we require a hard copy, our printers default to print double-sided. Our commitment to the environment goes beyond the Bank. We encourage our customers and associates to reduce paper waste by signing up for e-statements and online bill pay.
Each and every day, we are looking for new ways to make improvements in our communities.
