The Southern National Bancorp of Virginia (Sonabank) on Main Street in Old Town Warrenton will now be known as Primis Bank.

The Mclean-based company announced Thursday that it has changed its name to Primis Financial Corp.

Dennis J. Zember Jr., the company’s president and CEO, said the board and the executive team are committed to a new vision “centering around being innovative in the way we deliver more meaningful results to our customers and our shareholders, and doing so in a culture that is exciting and infectious,” a news release stated.

To celebrate the event, the newly branded bank branch held a ribbon cutting Thursday.

“The name Primis comes from the idea of being first,” said a spokesperson for Primis. “This ribbon cutting demonstrates our unwavering support to being part of the Warrenton community, and always putting it first.”
