Bank President Chosen

Christopher W. Bergstrom, 39, was named president of Cardinal Bank Manassas-Prince William.

Bergstrom will be responsible for management of the community bank, which opened July 26 in Manassas.

He previously served as executive vice president of Cardinal Financial Corp., where he was responsible for the launch of the company's Manassas bank.

Before joining Cardinal, Bergstrom spent 16 years at Crestar Bank and its predecessors.

Firm Expanding in Manassas

Learning Service Corp. plans to expand its Manassas operation, it announced last week.

The Durham, N.C.-based company, which provides supported living for people with severe head injuries, plans to open a five-bed home on Fairview Avenue this month.

Once its Tillet House opens, the company will have 33 beds at its four-acre Manassas campus, President Randall W. Evans said.

The company will hold an open house Aug. 31 at the new facility, which is next to the Manassas City Police Department.

Learning Service Corp. was founded in 1984 and opened its Manassas campus in 1989, employing a staff of 36.

The company is looking to expand further in Manassas after this addition, said Joey McClain, associate director.

The Manassas facility has a waiting list of 13 people.
