WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2007—Bank of Georgetown, a community bank chartered in Washington, D.C., has hired Gerard M. McLoughlin as their new vice president of commercial banking.
“Gerard brings a unique set of credentials and skills to our executive team,” said Bank of Georgetown President and CEO Michael Fitzgerald. “He’s got rich experience working with the real estate, construction and various business communities in and around D.C., but also he’s a communications and customer service specialist from earlier training, which means he understands how to reach out and connect with people and quickly understand their needs.”

While working as an assistant account executive with Equals Three Communications in Bethesda, Md., he provided media relations, partnership development, and research services directly to clients. In addition, he served as a communication services representative for the Edison Electric Institute. There he provided research assistance to members and helped to implement publicity and promotional strategies.
