President’s Letter: Serving Rural Nevada

Letter from Dallas Haun

Although Nevada State Bank is headquartered in Las Vegas, we are proud to serve 14 rural communities throughout the state, from Wells in far northeastern Nevada, to Tonopah in the center of the state, and Pahrump at its southern tip. We especially appreciate our relationship with Elko County, which has deepened over the past four years. We now have five branches there, serving many long-time residents of this beautiful part of the state.

In some of the small towns in Nevada, we are the only bank serving the financial needs of the community, and we play a vital role in the town’s economy.  Our bank branch is a place where workers can cash their paychecks and families can plan for their financial future.  Local businesses can conduct their daily banking transactions and get the financial advice and funding they need to survive and thrive.

The Nevada State Bank colleagues who work in these branches and offices are valued members of their community, volunteering at local organizations and supporting the chamber of commerce in their home town.  With their help, our branches host food drives, raise funds to support the Red Cross and other nonprofit groups, and encourage community support for schools and charities.  As a company, Nevada State Bank supports charities and nonprofit groups throughout the markets we serve.

We also help rural families go from renters to homeowners by partnering with the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco and the Nevada Rural Housing Authority (NRHA). WISH grants to NRHA’s rural clients triple the down payment contribution of qualified first-time homebuyers up to $15,000, making home ownership possible for rural residents and strengthening their communities.  We helped fund 10 NHRA clients for more than $141,000 in 2012, earning us NRHA’s “Most Valuable Partner” award.

On a personal note, it’s been a pleasure to get to know the people who live in our rural communities — not only our colleagues, but the families and business owners they serve.  I encourage those of you who haven’t visited our state’s small towns to take a road trip and discover the Nevada that’s out there beyond the glow of the city lights.  And while you’re there, stop by a Nevada State Bank branch and say hello.

Best Regards,

Dallas Haun

President and CEO
