ARLINGTON, Va. (Business Wire) -- Virginia Commerce Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCBI), parent company of Virginia Commerce Bank (“VCB”) has been named to Forbes' list of “America's 100 Most Trustworthy Companies” for the second year in a row. The annual list recognizes publicly-traded U.S. companies that demonstrate superior transparency and integrity.

Forbes once again partnered with independent corporate governance analytics firm GMI Ratings to publish the list of 100 companies on American exchanges that are the most transparent and trustworthy. According to Forbes, GMI's quantitative and qualitative analysis looked beyond raw data from companies' financial statements in order to assess the true quality of corporate accounting and management practices. In order to compile the list, GMI examined more than 8,000 publicly-traded companies with market caps of $250 million or greater. Virginia Commerce Bancorp, Inc. is included in the Small-Cap Company category with an accounting and governance risk score of 95 out of a possible 100, an increase from last year's score of 94.

“We are honored once again to be the only Virginia-headquartered bank included on this prestigious list that recognizes our continued commitment to maintaining the highest levels of financial transparency and integrity,” remarked Peter A. Converse, President and CEO of Virginia Commerce Bancorp, Inc. “It is particularly gratifying to be named among the most trustworthy companies by Forbes given VCB's core value of Trust.”
