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.

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.
