This article reports that Sandy Spring Bank of Olney, Md., and its predecessors have been in business for 135 years, but in 1996, when it expanded eastward into the Annapolis market, it met an unfamiliar problem: They were less well known in Annapolis than in Montgomery County. So in 1997, Hunter R. Hollar, the president and chief executive, assembled a local advisory board of Annapolis-area business leaders. Today his bank has four branches and nearly $140 million of deposits in Annapolis' Anne Arundel County, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
