Nevada Security Bank office near completion

Nevada Security Bank isn’t shy.

Its new 9,500-square-foot building at

Joe Bourdeau, senior executive vice president,

organizers expect the bank to thrive.

Today, Bordeau said, the bank has

$52 million in deposits. As recently as

June 30, Nevada Security Bank reported

to the FDIC that its deposits totaled

$37.8 million.

At the time of its last FDIC report, the

bank had cautiously begun lending with

$5.4 million in loans. The lion’s share of its

deposits nearly $25 million was invested

in securities.

Bordeau said the bank’s senior executives

know the northern Nevada market

well and are building a portfolio of commercial

and real estate loans.

President of the bank is Hal Giomi,

who formerly was a senior vice president of

Capital Valley Bank. Bourdeau, a longtime

resident of Incline Village, was vice president

and sales manager for Nevada

Banking co. Bob Walter, the bank’s executive

vice president and chief credit officer,

previously worked for Bank of the West,

Sierra West Bank, Bank of America and

Valley Bank of Nevada.
