EagleBank was established by Ronald D. Paul, former president of Bethesda-based Allegiance Bank, and a former banker from Central National Bank.
Eagle Bancorp, Inc., was incorporated in the state of Maryland on October 28, 1997. The company was established as a bank holding company as defined by the Federal Reserve System. The company closed its initial offering for shares of company stock on June 9, 1998.
On July 20, 1998, EagleBank opened its first office in Rockville, Maryland, after receiving approvals from the State of Maryland and the Federal Reserve System, and acceptance for deposit insurance from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Branch offices in Bethesda and Silver Spring opened several months afterwards. The bank opened a second location in Silver Spring in 1999, a location on K Street in Washington, D.C., in 2000, and a location near Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in 2002.
New capital was raised with a secondary stock offering in 2003. The new capital funded a new location on Rockville Pike in 2003 and a location near Dupont Circle in 2004. EagleBank opened a regional office at McPherson Square in 2005 and a branch office in Chevy Chase in 2006.
Eagle Bancorp Foundation was established in 2006. Funded from the proceeds of its golf fundraising event, the foundation supports organizations involved in the fight against breast cancer. In 2014, the tenth annual event raised more than $375,000, which will support local hospitals and charities involved in fighting breast cancer.
In April 2008, the National Collegiate Athletic Association approved holding a college football postseason game in the Washington Metropolitan Area. On September 11, 2008, Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the game would be sponsored by EagleBank, named the EagleBank Bowl, and played at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium. The first game was played on December 20, 2008. The second EagleBank Bowl was played on December 29, 2009. In 2010, the game was renamed the Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman after Northrop Grumman signed a multi-year agreement to be the game's title sponsor; EagleBank remained a principal sponsor.
In September 2008, EagleBank bought Fidelity and Trust Bank, resulting in new locations in Bethesda, Silver Spring, Rockville, Georgetown, Downtown Washington, and Tysons Corner, Virginia.
In December 2008, the United States Department of the Treasury purchased $38.2 million of assets from Eagle Bankcorp as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Chief Executive Officer Ronald Paul said that EagleBank was strong financially, but it was finding it extremely difficult to raise private capital because of the ongoing global financial crisis.
In July 2011, EagleBank announced it would buy Alliance Bank, but the transaction was called off five months later because they could not agree on the terms of the deal.
EagleBank bought Virginia Heritage Bank in 2014.
In 2010, EagleBank received funding so it could lend more to small businesses as part of the United States Department of Treasury's Small Business Lending Fund. EagleBank repaid the $71.9 million it received in 2015.
