David F. Goldberg, 1931–2016


Dear clients and friends,

dfgportraitOn Wednesday, October 5th, Burling Bank’s Founder and Chairman, David F. Goldberg, passed away peacefully at home at the age of 85.

A mentor to countless traders and a giant in the exchange industry, many of you knew Dave personally.  Dave was a LaSalle Street success story — a self-made man who started out as a teenage floor clerk at the Chicago Board of Trade and went on to lead an accomplished career as a commodity trader and business owner.  Never one to settle for complacency, Dave and his brother Bob built Goldberg Brothers into one of the largest clearing and trading firms in the industry with thousands of traders populating the trading floors in six different cities — spanning from San Francisco to London.

Grateful for the professional opportunities provided to him by the exchanges, Dave gave back to the industry by serving as a founding member and Director of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, as well as a Director of the Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Stock Exchange, Options Clearing Corporation, and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), appointed by President Ronald Reagan.

dfgtradingUpon the successful sale of his trading firm in 1988, Dave eschewed retirement and founded Burling Bank, a boutique banking business located in the landmark Chicago Board of Trade Building.  For twenty-seven years Dave served as Chairman of the Bank and continued to share his wisdom and guidance from his perch overlooking the LaSalle Street Canyon.

Always a proponent of service and helping others, Dave served in the U.S. Coast Guard and on countless charitable boards such as Loyola Academy, Regina Dominican High School, St. Francis Hospital, and Catholic Charities of Chicago.

Though he was a pragmatic man, David Goldberg believed in the promise of tomorrow.  In that spirit, we honor Dave today for what he meant to each and every one of us, and celebrate a life of purpose and an individual of character.  On behalf of Dave’s family, and the Bank’s Board of Directors and staff, we thank you for your friendship, your loyalty, and your confidence as part of the larger Burling family.

Very truly yours,


Andrew C. Goldberg                          Michael J. Busch

Vice Chairman                                    President


A memorial service will be held in Glenview, IL on November 4, 2016. For more information please click here.

Meet Maribeth Chambers, Senior Vice President of Personal Banking

This week marks the 27th anniversary of a dedicated employee known to all our clients — Maribeth Chambers, Senior Vice President of Personal Banking.

As one of Burling Bank’s founding team members in 1989, Maribeth has spent her career shaping our organization to become the personalized banking experience it is today. She is proud of the culture we have nurtured and the relationships we’ve built over the years. Both staff and clientele fully trust Maribeth as a point of contact for financial and personal inquiries, and it’s obvious that each interaction is of great importance to her.

“We get to know our clients so well, that we end up experiencing life events together,” said Chambers. “It’s not just a job. Clients and team members are like family.” From running out to the side of a vehicle to take a drive-by deposit to knowing a client just by their voice on the phone, Maribeth has been there for them.

She has proudly seen entire families begin, grow and blossom over the course of her career. Maribeth has known some clients from the day they got married, to the birth of a child, to watching those babies go off to college and even get married. She has worked with some of those now grown children as they’ve taken the reigns of family-owned businesses, and Burling Bank is still there for them.

Maribeth feels a deep sense of pride in the longevity of Burling Bank’s clients, as the Bank’s first depositor in 1989 is still a depositor today. She believes that the trust imbued throughout the relationship comes from the strength and commitment of Burling’s team, making connections simpler and client service more effective.

Maribeth’s career began two months before the organization officially opened in September 1989. Over the course of 27 years, she has progressed through the ranks to become our Senior Vice President of Personal Banking. When she is not at work, Maribeth enjoys boating and fishing with her family in the great outdoors. She also loves long walks on Lake Michigan and spending quality time with loved ones.

We thank Maribeth for her exceptional dedication and continued service for many years to come.
