CVBF Founding Chairman Passes Away

Stocks in this article: CVBF

The Board of Directors of CVB Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: CVBF) and Citizens Business Bank announced with great sadness the passing of George Borba, founder and Chairman of the Board.

In 1974, George, his brother John, Ron Kruse and several other local businessmen formed Chino Valley Bank with the vision of creating a community bank that could provide customized banking relationships to the many small businesses and business owners in the greater Chino area. His strong business and work ethic spearheaded a tremendous road to success for Chino Valley Bank, now Citizens Business Bank.

Today, CVBF has over $6.3 billion in assets and has produced 142 consecutive quarters of profitability with 92 consecutive quarters of paying a cash dividend to shareholders. Mr. Borba maintained an unwavering commitment to the Bank that was illustrated by the fact that he never sold a share of stock during his 38 year tenure as Chairman. He was committed to the future success of the company and took great pride in the dedication of the many associates who continue to work for and lead the Company.

George’s life was one of tremendous personal and professional success. He was born in 1932 in Ontario, California and was one of five children. He grew up in Chino, CA and attended Chino High School while working with the family dairy business. Armed with an incredible work ethic and an innate sense for business, George worked closely with his father and brothers and the family business grew into one of the larger dairy operations in the state of California. George is survived by Dolores, his wife of 57 years, five children, eighteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

“When we remember George, we will not forget the strong culture he created here at Citizens Business Bank. His faith, character, integrity, honesty, and tenacity served as the foundation for our Bank’s many achievements. His legacy will be the cornerstone of our future success,” stated Chris Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer.
