Mr. Hyatt continued, "Severn made decisions to position the bank for success as one of the few remaining local community banks, and this is a first step in the right direction. We are now dedicated to expanding technology and service offerings rather than dealing with problems. Severn is proud to continue the tradition of offering the personal service that residents and business owners in Anne Arundel County have come to expect from a community bank."
