LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2013) - Plaza Bank (OTCBB: PLZB) continued to build on its relationships within the Nevada business community by adding respected area banker Cyndi Compan as the Senior Vice President and Southern Nevada Market Manager.
"Cyndi is a talented banking leader who has worked in Las Vegas her entire career," said Erich Bollinger, Executive Vice President and Chief Banking Officer of the Irvine-based Plaza Bank. "She has business relationships and friendships going back decades. She understands the unique business community and she knows the people. She adds an immense amount of depth to our Bank, where service and relationships are everything."
Ms. Compan has worked at every level of commercial banking in Las Vegas since she began her career in 1985. In her new role she will oversee Plaza Bank's Las Vegas commercial banking team and all aspects of client management and business development.
"My philosophy is that banking relationships start with trust," Ms. Compan said. "People need to be confident that we're doing everything possible to help businesses and customers succeed and grow. At Plaza Bank, everyone we deal with gets to know their banker very well, and we give them all the tools to reach all their goals."
She said Las Vegas and Southern Nevada has a very distinct business climate, which is why she believes her experience can be so helpful.
"This is a community that has had really high times and fast growth, and now it's recovering from the downturned economy," she said. "Business is stabilizing and that's improving the region, and we believe we can help small businesses and the whole community."
Ms. Compan has lived in Las Vegas for more than three decades. She lives with her husband, Robert, and has a large family in the region. She is active in a number of organizations, including the March of Dimes, the Las Vegas Executive Association and the Robert Morris Association.
