Dan Doyle
Chairman of the Board
Central Valley Community Bank


Dan Doyle joined Central Valley Community Bancorp (Company) and Central Valley Community Bank (Bank) in Fresno, California, in June of 1998, as President and Chief Executive Officer. After 17 years of executive leadership, he retired on January 31, 2015, and continues as Chairman of the Board of the Company and the Bank.

During Doyle’s time as President and Chief Executive Officer, Central Valley Community Bank experienced great financial success as one of the safest and fastest-growing community banks in California’s San Joaquin Valley and Greater Sacramento region. A few of his accomplishments during his executive tenure included establishing Central Valley Community Bancorp, successfully completing three acquisitions, growing the Bank from six branches to more than twenty, helping the Bank experience nearly 700 percent growth and reaching $1.2 billion in assets as of December 31, 2014.

In his current role as Chairman of the Board, Doyle assisted with the Bank’s fourth acquisition: Sierra Vista Bank, which closed as of October 1, 2016. Since that time, Central Valley Community Bank has continued to experience financial success growing organically, in addition to adding its fifth acquisition: Folsom Lake Bank in 2017. The Bank has reached $2.2 billion in assets as of March 31, 2021, and has 21 full-service Banking Centers throughout its territory covering 16 unique communities.

With over four decades of banking experience, Doyle’s expertise and business values have been openly shared with Central Valley Community Bank and throughout the banking industry, in which he is regarded as a passionate steward. Doyle previously served as Regional President for US Bank in Washington State, and, in 1990, became the first President and Chief Executive Officer of US Bank of California.

In 2009, Doyle served as Chairman of the California Bankers Association Board of Directors, and in 2011, he was appointed to a three-year term on the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Twelfth District Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council where he shared his expertise on a variety of economic and banking conditions, regulatory policies and payment issues. Doyle was also appointed Chairman of the California Bankers Association Federal PAC, serving from 2013 – 2015, in addition to being appointed to the National Bank PAC Committee of the ABA for a similar term.

Doyle holds graduate and undergraduate degrees from the University of Washington. He also graduated with honors from Pacific Coast Banking School and holds advanced certificates from the American Institute of Banking.

A thought leader and loyal community servant, Doyle leads by example, generously giving his time, talent, treasure and mentorship to the banking industry, as well as to civic and community nonprofit organizations in every community with which he has been associated. His extensive list of community service involvement is as deep as his commitment to each organization.

For example, while President and CEO of Central Valley Community Bank, he led (and was significantly involved in) many organizations including local charities, philanthropies and business organizations. Doyle has long been a community steward dedicated to supporting the financial needs of local businesses and citizens. Among the central themes to his major community service efforts have been community transformation, job creation and Downtown revitalization. Those efforts have garnered numerous noteworthy highlights, most notably:
