First National Corp. in Strasburg, Va., has a new bank president.

The $530 million-asset company said in a press release Monday that Dennis Dysart would also remain chief operating officer of First Bank. Since 2005, Dysart has held a variety of leadership posts at the bank, including chief credit officer, chief operating officer and interim chief.

"During the recent economic recession, Dennis stepped up when needed to help navigate difficult challenges and put the bank on a path to success," First National CEO Scott Harvard said in the release. "He accepted the job of interim CEO when called upon, chief credit officer when needed, and now has agreed to serve as president of the bank that he has helped to build into a leading financial institution in the Shenandoah Valley."

First Bank recently bought six Bank of America branches in Virginia.
