July 2016 - John Burdiss and Old Dominion Risk Advisors Announce Strategic Partnership

Robert J. Bloxom, founder and president of Old Dominion Risk Advisers (“ODRA”) and John Burdiss of Cape Charles, VA announce a new strategic partnership effective July 15, 2016. ODRA provides customized risk management solutions to small and mid-sized financial institutions. Burdiss is an attorney and banking consultant with years of experience in the banking industry. Bloxom retired in 2014 after a 28-year banking career focused on lending and enterprise risk management. Bob began his banking career in 1986 as a commercial banker and later became a chief risk officer, including serving as the chief credit officer, chief risk officer and finally chief operating officer for Hampton Roads Bankshares, a $2 billion regional bank holding company.

Burdiss began his banking career in 1972 as a bank examiner for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. He served as CEO of two community banks, senior lender at a bank holding company with a $240 million loan portfolio, and as a director at four community banks and one bank holding company.

John has provided expert testimony and litigation consultation for over 25 years in matters being litigated in over 30 states. He has been qualified in state/federal courts in 10 jurisdictions; many of his cases involved lending. He is also a practicing attorney, licensed in Virginia and West Virginia, he is a Certified Fraud Examiner, and he passed the national CPA exam.

Loan portfolio analysis, overall credit administration, board guidance and expert testimony/litigation support are among the areas where Bloxom and Burdiss will work together through ODRA. Burdiss will continue his legal practice, but will not be engaged as legal counsel in any bank litigation.

Bloxom and Burdiss will combine their collective experience and skills in furthering and expanding both firms’ missions to provide guidance to progressive, informed bank boards to achieve best practices that meet or exceed regulatory requirements and address the competitive dictates in the banking industry.
