Central Valley Community Bank in Fresno has announced the retirement of two of its executive vice presidents, which will take effect later this year.

Monday morning, it was announced that Gary Quisenberry, executive vice president of commercial banking, will be retiring on July 31 and Lydia Shaw, executive vice president of community banking, will be leaving on Oct. 11.

Quisenberry was named head of commercial banking in 2000 and has been responsible for all of the bank’s commercial lending activities — both general commercial and various specialized business groups. His retirement comes after 34 years in the industry and 19 years with the bank.

Shaw was named the lead of the community banking division in 2007 and has been responsible for all management, as well as the bank’s investment division. Her experience in banking spans 33 years, 12 of which were at Central Valley Community Bank.

“Gary and Lydia’s passion for banking, dedication to serving others and gift for mentorship have positively impacted the lives of hundreds of employees and clients over their many years of service and we are fortunate to have had them on our team,” said James M. Ford, president and CEO of Central Valley Community Bank and Central Valley Community Bancorp.

Central Valley Community Bank will move forward with reorganization under one leader, James Kim, executive vice president and COO. The newly combined banking division will include two new executive VPs, market executives who will manage the bank’s northern and southern regions to create a single client service as well as a new revenue structure.
