Congratulations are in order for George Mason University School of Business dean Sarah E.

Nutter’s addition to the Board of Directors brings the board’s total membership to eleven. Each member brings a broad range of experience and expertise both within and outside the financial services industry.

“Dr. Nutter is a highly-accomplished and talented educator and leader, and we are delighted to have someone of her caliber join our Board of Directors,” E. Hunt Burke, the Bank’s chairman & chief executive officer, said. “She brings to our team a wealth of knowledge and experience in business, finance, and education, along with a genuine passion for helping local businesses succeed and thrive. I’m excited about the opportunity to work with Sarah and learn from her as we continue our work to ensure ongoing success for Burke & Herbert Bank.”

Prior to her faculty appointment at George Mason, Nutter was an economist at the Internal Revenue Service and a faculty member at the University of Maryland-Overseas Division in Germany. She earned her undergraduate degree from Ferris State University and her MBA and PhD from Michigan State University. She currently serves as the Presidential Fellow at George Mason and teaches courses in accounting and taxation in the undergraduate, MBA, and Executive MBA programs.

Nutter has received several teaching awards for Outstanding Faculty Member from George Mason’s Executive MBA Program. She has developed executive education courses for numerous governmental agencies and companies, including Oracle Corporation, General Dynamics, Time Warner, Sallie Mae, and Lee Technologies. She has led global residencies for graduate students to Singapore, Vietnam, China, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Nutter currently serves on the AACSB Accounting Accreditation Committee, as president-elect with the Accounting Program Leadership Group of the American Accounting Association, and on the board of the Virginia Society of CPAs Educational Foundation.

“I too am excited about joining the Board of Directors at Burke & Herbert Bank,” Nutter said. “While I am at the very beginning of my work with the Bank, it is clear that Burke & Herbert Bank is a unique, caring, and highly-successful organization with a long, storied history of helping individuals and businesses throughout northern Virginia. I am looking forward to working with Mr. Burke and all the members of the Bank’s Board of Directors and to helping the Bank grow and prosper.”
