Quezon Capital Rural Bank (QCRB) was founded and established in Lucena City, Quezon on January 29, 1974 by CPA-Lawyer LEANDRO P. GARCIA. The Charter Board was then composed of Gil G. Puyat, Jr., a noted banker, as Chairman; Atty. Leandro P. Garcia, President; Atty. Medardo B. Medenilla, Corporate Secretary; Mrs. Illuminada C. Alcala (wife of then Quezon Governor Anacleto C. Alcala), Vice- President; businessman Remigio C. Bautista, Treasurer; Dr. Sonia I. Garcia (wife of then Judge Efren P. Garcia) and Dr. Emeterio Calayan, Jr. as Board Members.
On January 29, 1974, QCRB opened its doors to business, with noted commercial lawyer Atty. Jose S. Laureles as its first General Manager. The Bank was then housed in a rented edifice in the heart of the city’s commercial district, at the corner of Merchan and Juarez streets, Lucena City. On June 15, 1980, QCRB moved to its present site on its own building at the corner of Perez and C.M. Recto streets, which is strategically located within the enclave of the Head of the Provincial Government of Quezon.
The Bank is being managed by the present Board headed by Dr. Ciriaco Am. Caraos as Chairman, Atty. Edward Leandro Z. Garcia, Jr. as President and CEO, Richard Leandro Z. Garcia as Corporate Secretary, Anacleto C. Alcala, Jr. as Treasurer, Alexander M. Calma as Executive Vice-President and COO and six other directors namely: Emilio R. Pilar, Atty. Hector Reuben D. Feliciano, Atty. Medardo B. Medenilla, Atty. Jose S. Laureles, Dr. Marissa Antonette Z. Garcia and Ferdinand Leandro Z. Garcia. The Architect and Founder of QCRB- Atty. Leandro P. Garcia is now the bank’s Chairman Emeritus.
In the new millenium, QCRB upholds its tradition of conservatism with progressiveness because there lies its strength.
