With more than 30 years of expertise in commercial banking and management, Dallas E. Haun is the Chair of Nevada State Bank, a division of Zions Bancorporation, N.A.
Haun took over the reins of Nevada State Bank in 2007 as President, Chairman and CEO. Under his leadership, Nevada State Bank has experienced growth and expansion and is recognized as a leading financial institution in the region. Haun spearheaded the bank’s reorganization into five lines of business—retail, real estate, small business, commercial, and private banking—that today has enabled the bank to more effectively serve the needs of each client group.
Previously Haun served as executive vice president for a major Southern California bank. He was a member of that institution’s executive committee and managed 12 regional centers, handling commercial and private banking throughout the state. He served there for 20 years, eventually rising to the positions of president and chief operating officer.
A graduate of Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in finance, Haun received his postgraduate degree from the University of Washington’s Pacific Coast Banking School. He also completed the Executive Program at the Anderson School of Business at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Currently Haun serves on the board of directors for Three Square and is a member of the UNLV Foundation Board of Trustees. He also serves on the executive advisory board for the Lee Business School at UNLV. As a 2018 appointee of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, Haun also serves on the Nevada Athletic Commission.
Haun’s previous roles include his service as a commissioner for the Nevada Commission on Tourism and his membership on the boards of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority, the College of Southern Nevada Board of Trustees, and Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.
In 2015, Haun was honored by the March of Dimes as the first Nevadan to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, one of only 200 given by the national organization.
Haun joined the Claremont Graduate University Board of Trustees in 2019.
