Silver: Nevada State Bank

Nevada State Bank believes strong Nevada roots and a commitment to the community create a bank where people can find a career, find financial solutions that work, and even find financing for their dreams. Nearly 60 years ago, inspired by a vision of economic growth, a group of 12 enterprising Nevada businessmen chartered Nevada State Bank. They shared in the pioneering spirit of Nevada, and from the beginning, their mission focused on the community, helping Nevadans pursue their diverse dreams. The bank opened for business on Dec. 9, 1959 with one location in downtown Las Vegas. Just as the founders envisioned, the bank has grown along with the state. In 1995, Nevada State Bank opened our first Elko branch. We now have 50 branches in 20 urban and rural communities across Nevada, and over the years we’ve maintained a tradition of unsurpassed customer service and community involvement. Nevada State Bank colleagues donate more than 5,000 hours of volunteer time each year to local non-profit groups and community organizations.

Nevada State Bank, a division of ZB, N.A., is a full-service bank offering a complete range of consumer, private, and business banking services, including credit cards, mortgages and business loans. We believe our clients appreciate the personal attention they receive, and we love getting to know them and their financial needs. We work hard to understand our clients and offer a complete suite of products and services customized to fit their household or business needs. As a community bank with a long local history, we understand the unique Nevada market and believe in giving back where we all live, work and play.
