Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M Bank) was opened by the Walker Family in 1907. Their first location was in the city of Long Beach and their original downtown branch is still operational today. Currently F&M Bank has 25 locations, including their newest branch in Rossmoor and locations in Santa Barbara. They have over 700 employees, which includes a new call center located in Seal Beach. Additionally their real estate lending portfolio holds 3 billion dollars in outstanding loans.

Dave grew up as a Southern Californian native and currently lives in Cerritos with his wife and child. Dave continues to give back to Southern California and is a part of several affiliations within the Long Beach community.  Dave has been an Execs member since 2014.
