Douple succeeds Yowell as Oak View chairman

The board of Warrenton-based Oak View National Bank has elected Earl Douple Jr. as chairman.

Mr. Douple succeeds Donald R. “Duke” Yowell, who stepped down as chairman but will remain on the board.

A member of the board of directors since the Oak View open in 2009, Mr. Douple works as business manager and secretary-treasurer of Canopy Inc., a personal services firm, and The Plains Redevelopment Corp., a real estate holding company. A resident of The Plains, he earned a bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College, a master’s in law from Georgetown University and a master’s in business from The Darden School at the University of Virginia. His 30 years of professional experience include tax, estate and financial planning, asset management and allocation of financial holdings among various asset classes.

“We are delighted to have such a depth and breadth of knowledge and willingness to serve on our board,” Oak View CEO and Vice Chairman Michael Ewing said. “We are very fortunate to have a group of deeply committed board members who have generously given of their time and effort to make this bank the success it has become. I am thrilled Duke will remain a member of the board and look forward to working more closely with Earl . . . .

“Duke’s experience and credibility as the founding chairman were instrumental in helping us start Oak View National Bank and getting us to where we are today,” Mr. Ewing added. “We’ve made a good team and I sincerely express my appreciation for all he has done for us and the community.”
