Jim Bear

Vice President, Commercial Loans


Jim Bear

Jim has more than 40 years of banking and client service experience and currently serves the Frederick area as a commercial lender. In his role, he helps businesses and entrepreneurs find the right tools and services to grow and thrive.

“Knowing I helped a client either through banking solutions or advice to achieve success in their business is the best part of my job. As a community bank we develop solutions that fit the client’s needs and not the bank’s needs. Decisions are made outside of the box.”

Jim is involved in many local activities and is a Past President of the Fredericktowne Rotary Club. While he enjoys a lot of the Frederick restaurant scene, his #goLocal favorite is Dutch’s Daughter. When not at work he may be found playing golf, fishing, and enjoying every moment he can with his grandchildren.
