National Capital Bank of Washington has a new chief executive.

The $408 million-asset bank said in a press release that Richard Anderson also became its president on April 18. He succeeded James Didden, who served as president and chief executive since 2007.

Anderson recently served as a regional president at United Bankshares in Vienna, Va. He also served as chief lending officer of Virginia Commerce Bank in Arlington for 17 years before it was sold to United in 2014.

Didden, who stepped down to work part-time as the bank's marketing adviser, will remain on the board, a spokesman said.
