Spring 2019 About

Virginia Tech Business is published twice a year by Pamplin College of Business, Virginia Tech.

Two former students lead a merger to reconstruct something from their past: "a great Virginia-based regional bank," like the ones they once worked for.

According to Pamplin alumnus Mike Clarke, the successful banks of the future will be those that “embrace safety, security, and trust while delivering a client experience that is timely, easy, and exceeds expectations.”

An internationally recognized scholar, Lowry has been identified as the world’s No. 1 information systems scholar, based on publications over the past five years in the field's top six journals.

The Merryman family has committed a total of $2 million to be split between Virginia Tech Athletics and the Pamplin College of Business.

While previous research focused primarily on the intended consequences of policies put in place to safeguard privacy, Lowry’s study is the first to also look at unintended consequences, which can be catastrophic.

A point Asbury loves to make when calling on business customers: "The buck stops here. Virginia needs a bank where customer needs are decided here and not somewhere else.”

"Bank mergers are an accelerant to achieving critically needed economies of scale, to spread cost out over a larger base of customers, to diversify business risk, and to open new growth market opportunities."
