Silicon Valley Bank
SVB was the 16th-biggest bank in the United States and the largest bank in Silicon Valley by deposits. SVB has offices in California and Massachusetts.
The bank was the core operation of SVB Financial Group, its publicly traded bank holding company, which also has offices in 13 other states and over a dozen overseas countries.
Former Bank of America executives William Biggerstaff and Robert Medearis formed Silicon Valley Bank in 1983 to serve the requirements of fledgling businesses.
They came up with the concept while playing poker. Roger V. Smith, who formerly led a high-tech lending business at Wells Fargo, was chosen as the bank’s first CEO and president.
On October 17, 1983, the bank opened its doors as a wholly owned subsidiary of Silicon Valley Bancshares (now SVB Financial Group) with 100 original investors. The company’s original office was on North First Street in San Jose.
