MidFirst Bank expanded into the southern Nevada market, with Michael Pizzi, who will serve as senior vice president and Nevada market executive, and a team of bankers from Bank of Nevada who have experience in the area leading the initiative. This expansion extends MidFirst’s growth in the western U.S., building upon the bank’s recently announced entrance into the new Southern California markets of Santa Barbara, San Diego and South Bay.
“We are pleased to continue executing MidFirst’s growth strategy with our entrance into the southern Nevada market,” Jeff Records, chairman and CEO of MidFirst Bank, said. “Michael and his team have a strong foundation in Nevada and a reputation for excellence, and we’re confident they are the best team to develop our new market presence. Las Vegas has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade, and MidFirst is ideally positioned to support this thriving community, providing robust banking service offerings and leading customer service.”
“We look forward to bringing MidFirst Bank to southern Nevada and growing our presence in the region,” Pizzi said. “We have a solid team of experienced bankers in place to lead our market development, and together we will deliver a unique brand of banking to this community with an emphasis on personal relationships, first class customer service, expert financial guidance and community support. Over the next year, we will focus on expanding our team so we can best serve the community with a comprehensive suite of banking products and services to include private banking, mortgage, SBA and treasury management services.”
Pizzi’s career spans 25 years with a focus on business banking and middle-market companies. He most recently served as executive vice president and managing director of commercial banking at Bank of Nevada, and prior to that served in various management positions at U.S. Bank for more than 14 years. His clients are participants in a variety of industries, including the medical, legal, manufacturing, wholesale, distribution and commercial real estate markets. Pizzi serves as a member of the Latin Chamber of Commerce. He is a past board member of both Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada and the Discovery Children’s Museum.
Pizzi is bringing with him a team of banking professionals from Bank of Nevada to serve the southern Nevada market for MidFirst Bank, including Joyce Smith and Jeff Miracle as senior vice presidents.
