Doyle had previously served as CEO of the bank for more than a decade before stepping down from the position in 2014.
He was honored at the CBA’s annual conference held in Santa Barbara on Jan. 13 for his longstanding service to the banking industry.
“I am both proud and humbled to have been selected by my banking peers for this prestigious award. It’s been my honor to have served the California Bankers Association in many capacities over the years, and more importantly advocate for the banking industry and its valued customers throughout the nation,” Doyle said in a statement.
Doyle is the CBA’s 16th winner of the Distinguished Banker of the Year nod.
“The California Bankers Association is honored to have presented this award to Dan,” said Rodney K. Brown, president & CEO of the California Bankers Association. “Dan’s impressive banking career spanned more than four decades, and he has been deeply involved in and dedicated to our Association for years, serving on many of our volunteer committees, including our Board of Directors. A consistently strong and vocal advocate for his profession, Dan was our chairman in 2010 and we were fortunate to have had a volunteer leader of his caliber during that difficult time in the financial services industry.”
