Great Falls-based Trustar Bank announced Tuesday it has hired Samuel A. Schreiber as senior adviser.

He was Washington, D.C., president and mid-Atlantic regional president with Wachovia and became a regional executive with Wells Fargo. In his new role he will focus on opportunity introduction and acquisition.
“Business development through relationship building is at the heart of community banking and is something that the Trustar team does very well,” Schreiber said in a statement. “I look forward to being a part of a team focused on enriching the experience of clients through exceptional service and forward-thinking solutions.”
Schreiber is also a former chairman of the Greater Washington Board of Trade and is a member of the board of Inova Hospital Foundation, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the Washington Performing Arts Society and the DC College Access Program.
