Prior to joining Nevada State Bank, Mr. Haun served as executive vice president for a major southern California bank, where he was also on the bank’s executive committee. In that position, he managed 12 regional centers, handling commercial and private banking throughout California.  Haun began his banking career in Michigan, but soon came west and spent 20 years with a bank in southern California, eventually serving as president and chief operating officer.

A graduate of Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Finance, Haun received his postgraduate degree from the University of Washington’s Pacific Coast Banking School. He also completed the Executive Program at the Anderson School of Business at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). 

An advocate of education, Haun was appointed by Governor Sandoval to serve on the UNLV Campus Improvement Authority, charged with determining the feasibility of developing an on-campus stadium.  He is actively involved in Nevada State Bank's partnership with Ruby Thomas Elementary School in Las Vegas, as well as the bank’s sponsorship of Elko Hunger Prevention Program, providing school breakfasts through Communities in Schools. He serves on the Board of Trustees for the UNLV Foundation and the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce, and previously served on the Board of Trustees for the College of Southern Nevada Foundation.  In 2010 and 2011, Haun served as the state chairman for March of Dimes March for Babies, successfully leading efforts to raise funds to prevent premature births for Nevada’s babies.
