As we gear up for fall and the busyness it can bring, it's important to take stock of our own needs
and ensure that they're being met. As always, we're delighted to help out--this month, we're
featuring three businesses that remain focused on serving clients.
Alicio Castaņeda began as a customer service representative at
The Fauquier Bank's (TFB)
Centreville Road branch in July 2017 while attending George Mason University full time. He
quickly put his extensive customer service background skills to work, and it was no surprise that
he was asked to become a branch manager trainee last February.
Having recently graduated from GMU and completed his training, Alicio began in his new role at
the Sudley Road branch earlier this month. He will primarily focus on the retail side of banking
but of course will ensure branch procedures are followed as well as seek commercial clients.
Bilingual in Spanish and English, Alicio is also a terrifi c asset in a bank that serves a signifi cant
Latino community. To learn more, call
(703) 366-1604.
One of the challenges of homeownership is keeping everything in good working order over the
long term. When a mechanical, electrical, or plumbing issue arises, it's comforting to have a
business like
MEP Home Services in our midst.
Launched in 2010 by Tim Colgan (son of the late Virginia State Senator Charles Colgan), his
nephew Mike Colgan, and former colleague Drew Warren, the Manassas-based business has
150 employees and about 90 vans that serve all of northern Virginia down to Stafford and
Spotsylvania counties.
"At our core, we're about having good people," Tim says. MEP technicians stay up-to-date on
changes in their fi elds while remaining focused on outstanding customer service--the business
has grown by about 38% each year since it opened! To learn more, call
(703) 369-8914.
With the school year underway, perhaps you're looking for a new activity for your children.
Academy of Russian Ballet is a wonderful option for children from ages two-and-a-half and up.
Yuri and Jasmine Nikitenko realized their lifelong dream in 2006, when they opened their studio
to offer instruction in Russian ballet, tap, jazz, and modern dance.
"We wanted to work together to educate the next generation of dancers," Jasmine says. "It has
turned into something so much more than we ever imagined."
The school remains small and close-knit, with some students dancing for the pure joy of it
(including at annual recitals and full-length performances) while others take it to a higher level--
traveling abroad to compete in international dance festivals and even becoming professional
dancers. To learn more, call
(703) 368-2268.
