President, Frank Canova Jr., joined Diablo Valley Cabinetry in 2003, 21 years after his father Frank established the company. Frank Jr. says his presence has added a new dimension of technology and engineering expertise to a firm that’s already known for its expert knowledge, creativity and passion for customer service.

Diablo Valley Cabinetry’s San Ramon showroom features more than 15 full displays and the company’s design professionals work with our customers to choose the right products to fit their lifestyles and budgets.

Diablo Valley Cabinetry is a family-owned and operated company, known for its customer service, quality products and excellent design professionals.

Frank R. Canova Jr. - President

Frank is a native of the East Bay, born and raised in Danville, CA. He joined Diablo Valley Cabinetry in 2003, 21 years after his father, Frank Canova Sr., established the company.

Frank brought his engineering and business background (with degrees from California Polytechnic State University) to this local family business. After spending a number of years working in technology, Frank found a growing interest in small business, customer service and working with local families and contractors. He found a much greater sense of satisfaction in working at a company where he could drive the philosophy and company vision of providing meaningful customer service and products than with enterprise software development.

In contrast to the commonly-held philosophy of “latest and greatest”, Frank believes strongly the projects Diablo Valley Cabinetry takes on should be built to last so families can enjoy them for years to come. He is thankful to work with an amazing team of individuals who share this commitment to excellent customer service, quality relationships and outstanding products.

Frank currently lives in Walnut Creek with his wife Kate and his 2 daughters, enjoys outdoor activities and can frequently be found hiking or cycling.

In 1982 Frank Sr. founded Diablo Valley Cabinetry with the vision to provide Homeowners and contractors in the Tri-valley area with reliable, integrity based service in the kitchen and bath industry.
