Exchange Bank has had only nine presidents in its long history. Father and son Manville Doyle and Frank Doyle co–founded the Bank in 1890. Frank Doyle served as President until 1948. Our third and fourth presidents, Charles Reinking and Andrew Shepard presided over a time of expansion and banking innovation. In 1986, C. William Reinking became Exchange Bank’s fifth president, and J. Barrie Graham became our sixth president in 2003. In 2008, Bill Schrader became our seventh president and gained the title of CEO in 2010. In 2014, Gary Hartwick became our eighth president and CEO. In 2021, Troy Sanderson became Exchange Bank’s ninth president and CEO. Nothing displayed Frank Doyle’s commitment to Santa Rosa more than a simple piece of paper—his last will and testament. Doyle wanted the Bank to remain a locally owned and managed institution long after he was gone. Rather than giving his stock to his heirs, his controlling interest (50.44% of the common stock) was put into a perpetual trust—the Frank P. Doyle and Polly O’Meara Doyle Scholarship Fund, to assist in the education of “…worthy young men and women attending Santa Rosa Junior College.” Today our community knows it as the Doyle Scholarship. Since 1948, the scholarship fund has provided over $93.6 million to more than 139,000 students. The trust ensured that Frank Doyle’s legacy of community commitment would always stand as an active example for the rest of the Exchange Bank family.
