Nevada State Bank celebrates newest full-service branch in Dayton

RENO, NV - (February 23, 2009) -Nevada State Bank, Nevada's oldest and largest state-chartered bank, is kicking off its 50th anniversary by opening a new full-service bank branch in Dayton.

"For the past 50 years, Nevada State Bank has been providing exceptional service and products to our clients," said Craig Kirkland, executive vice president of retail banking for Nevada State Bank. "We wanted to continue that tradition for our clients and a full-service branch provides more thoroughly for their banking needs in Dayton."

The new full-service branch in Dayton opened Feb. 17 and is located at 244 Dayton Valley Road in Suite 100.

The opening of the new branch is in keeping with Nevada State Bank's strategic focus of providing full-service banking. Full-service branches provide a quiet, professional atmosphere for clients to conduct business.

"The best place to conduct business is somewhere you can discuss your financial matters privately, which is what our full-service branches offer," Kirkland said.
