BB&T names Ransom Loudoun area executive
BB&T has named Thomas Ransom, formerly of Middlesex, as the area executive for Loudoun County.
Ransom is BB&T’s market leader for both east and west Loudoun County. He will report to Battlefield Region president Dontá Wilson, who has offices at 22550 Davis Drive in Sterling and at 101 Catoctin Circle Southeast in Leesburg.
“BB&T is fortunate to have Thomas to serve in this role,” said Wilson. “His qualifications make him the ideal person to lead BB&T here and to ensure BB&T’s perfect client experience is delivered to our Loudoun County clients.”
Ransom joined BB&T in 2000 as an associate in BB&T’s Management Development Program. He has served as a business banker in Baltimore and Woodbridge, as a business services officer in the Prince William County market, and most recently as the city executive for eastern Loudoun County.
Ransom is a graduate of Middlesex High School and Hampden-Sydney College and completed a fellowship in public policy and international affairs at Princeton University. He earned his master’s degree from the University of Baltimore. He also is a graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking.
Ransom is active in the Loudoun-Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Loudoun-Dulles Airport Rotary and the Committee for Dulles. He is a coach of the Dulles South youth football team. He and his wife Christy, and their son Keston, live in Lansdowne.
“I’m excited to lead BB&T’s Loudoun County operations,” said Ransom. “We are committed to making a difference, and we do this by not only helping our clients achieve financial success and economic security, but also by supporting more than 40 different Loudoun community organizations. BB&T is one of the strongest banks in the country and I’m excited about getting this message out to the community.”
