Jesser chosen as FCNB chairman

Following the December death of Fayette County National Bank President and Chairman of the Board Charles E. Mahan IV, the board met last month to new elect officers.

Frederick A. Jesser III was elected chairman of the board; Michael Rahall, president; Denise A. Light, executive vice president and CEO; and Louise Rakes, senior vice president-loans and compliance officer.

Jesser, 67, has been a practicing real estate lawyer in Fayetteville for the past 40 years. He has been a member of the board of directors for 35 years and has served as general counsel for the bank for 37.

President Rahall is the owner of Ben Franklin Crafts in Fayetteville and has served on the Fayette County National Bank board of directors since February 1997.

Executive Vice President and CEO Light started her banking career in January 1986 with FCNB and served the bank most recently as vice president and cashier.

Rakes, senior vice president-loans and compliance officer, has been an active member of the bank staff since March 19, 1984. She most recently served the bank as vice president and compliance officer.

In a joint statement the four new officers pledged the same quality banking and personal service that has been a hallmark of FCNB for the last 112 years.
