Community bank to come to Summerlin this summer in effort to help city reopen

Valley Bank of Nevada recently announced the opening of two new loan centers — one currently located and operating inside the Henderson full-service branch, at 4343 E. Sunset Road, and an upcoming Loan Production Office, which will open at 10100 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite 260, this summer. The Summerlin location will be the community bank’s first presence in southwest Las Vegas and the first step to opening a full-service branch there in 2023.

The locations will offer commercial and business loans, working with owners of small businesses to meet their needs throughout the economic recovery. In addition to the full-service Henderson branch, Valley Bank of Nevada operates its first full-service branch, at 6385 Simmons St., in North Las Vegas.

“There’s not another local bank that covers all three communities,” said James York, president/CEO of Valley Bank of Nevada. “There’s a lot of pent-up demand for loans out there, and we’re ready to help the valley open up again.”

The Summerlin location will be led by Vince Ciminise, senior vice president and loan manager, who has 36 years of banking experience. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas alumnus also won the Pinnacle Banker Award in 2017 and currently serves as a trustee for the Vegas Chamber of Commerce. Thomas Ewing, vice president and commercial loan officer, will join Ciminise at the new location.

Matthew Wong, senior vice president and loan manager, will manage the Henderson lending team, which will include commercial loan officer Stephanie Carlisle. Wong has 10 years of banking experience and holds two bachelor’s degrees with a master’s degree in accounting currently underway. Wong also is a Pinnacle Banker Award winner as well as a member of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.
