QUEEN OF THE VALLEY FOUNDATION ADDS JEFF STREBLOW TO BOARD
Third generation of Streblow family to support the Queen
NAPA, CA, June 11, 2018 – Queen of the Valley Foundation is honored to add Jeff Streblow
to its Board of Trustees. A Napa native, Jeff has historical family ties
to the Queen and brings extraordinary business experience to his role
as a board member.
Jeff Streblow is a rare individual. He has spent his entire, three-plus-decades
career working for one company, Connell Bros., a division of Wilbur-Ellis Company.
Jeff has worked extensively in Asia as well as California, Oregon and Canada
in several capacities for Connell, including exporting hay, establishing
process manufacturing and storage facilities, and overseeing regional
businesses as well as IT services. Today, as Senior Vice President of
Operations he is responsible for $800 million in sales of specialty chemical
and ingredients distribution throughout Asia Pacific, including 50 offices
in 17 countries and more than 1,200 employees.
Jeff’s family has played an important role in the history of Queen
of the Valley. His grandfather, A.G. “Al” Streblow, was the
president of Basalt Rock Company and a driving force in establishing a
modern hospital in Napa. Once the founding sisters secured a site for
the Queen, it was Al who reached out to the community for the funds to
do so, stating, “Everyone must put their shoulder to the wheel.”
Jeff’s maternal grandfather, Albert Frommelt, was a founding member
of the Foundation’s board, as was his father, Jack Streblow. Jack
later served as the Foundation’s chair for two years in the early
1980s and Jeff’s mother, Patricia Streblow, was an active supporter
of the Queen throughout its history.
As the third generation of Streblows to contribute to the Queen, Jeff is
making history while reminding us of how important it is to provide big
city medicine to our small town.
