President and CEO
Bank of Botetourt
Lyn Hayth is the President and CEO of the Bank of Botetourt. Lyn has been a banker for more than 30 years. His bank, with about $312 million in assets and $248 million in loans, operates primarily in the Virginia counties of Botetourt, Roanoke, Franklin and Rockbridge. Bank of Botetourt was an early leader in online banking for community banks and was the first state bank in Virginia to take advantage of the JOBS Act changes, de-registering with the SEC and later terminating its bank holding company. This is a bank that is not afraid to try new things. It constantly and strategically looks for things that will help the bank, yet it also "sticks to its knitting." Accordingly, we were a bit surprised that Lyn's advice had nothing to do with new technologies or new regulations.
